Recombinant Human THTPA produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 250 amino acids (1-230 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 27.7 kDa. THTPA is fused to a 20 amino acid His-Tag at N-Terminus and purified by conventional chromatography techniques.
THTPA enzyme is part of the THTPase family. THTPA is localized to the cytoplasm and expressed at small quantities in a variety of tissues, including testis, uterus, prostate, bladder, lung and kidney. THTPA is a hydrolase that catalyzes the H2O-dependent hydrolysis of thiamine triphosphate (THTP) to thiamine diphosphate (THDP), the main form of thiamine within the cell. THTPA occurs as a monomer and is activated at an optimal pH of 8.5.
MGC2652, THTP, THTPASE.
Sterile filtered colorless solution.
The THTPA 1mg/ml protein solution contains 20mM Tris-HCL buffer, pH-8, 1mM DTT and 10% Glycerol.
Store THTPA at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks. Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
