TULP1 Human Recombinant produced in E. coli is a single polypeptide chain containing 276 amino acids (290-542) and having a molecular mass of 31.1 kDa.TULP1 is fused to a 23 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Tubby-related protein 1 (TULP1) belongs to the TULP family of 4 proteins (TUB and TULP1, -2, and -3), categorized structurally by the highly conserved C-terminal half of the protein. Tubby-like gene family (TULPs) members are found in plants, vertebrates, and invertebrates and encode proteins of unknown function. TULP proteins share a conserved C-terminal region of roµghly 200 amino acid residues. In the retina, TULP1 is observed exclusively in the photoreceptor cells, localizing predominantly in the inner segments and connecting cilium and to a lesser degree in the perinuclear cytoplasm and synaptic termini. TULP1 gene mutations are linked with retinitis pigmentosa.
