a-Synuclein Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain of 140 amino acids having a molecular mass of 14.4kDa(Real molecular weight on SDS-PAGE will be shift up). The Recombinant Human a-Synuclein is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
a-Synuclein (amino acids 1-140), an acidic neuronal protein of 140 amino acids, is extremely heat-resistant and is natively unfolded with an extended structure primarily composed of random coils. a-synuclein has been sµggested to be implicated in the pathogenesis of Parkinson’s disease and related neurodegenerative disorders, and more recently, to be an important regulatory component of vesicular transport in neuronal cells. Moreover, recent studies have shown that a-synuclein has chaperone activity and that this activity is lost upon removing its C-terminal acidic tail (amino acids 96-140).
