Recombinant Human Peroxiredoxin-5/PRDX5 (N-6His)

Cat.No.: CK91

Recombinant Human PRDX5 (N-6His)
Description
Recombinant Human Peroxiredoxin-5 is produced by our Mammalian expression system and the target gene encoding Met53-Leu214 is expressed with a 6His tag at the N-terminus.
Accession #:P30044
Known as:Peroxiredoxin-5; PRDX5; Alu corepressor 1; Antioxidant enzyme B166; AOEB166; Liver tissue 2D-page spot 71B; PLP; Peroxiredoxin V; Prx-V; Peroxisomal antioxidant enzyme; TPx type VI; Thioredoxin peroxidase PMP20; Thioredoxin reductase
Formulation
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution of PBS, pH 7.4.
Quality Control
Purity:Greater than 95% as determined by reducing SDS-PAGE.
Endotoxin:Less than 0.1 ng/µg (1 EU/µg) as determined by LAL test.
Reconstitution
Always centrifuge tubes before opening. Do not mix by vortex or pipetting.
It is not recommended to reconstitute to a concentration less than 100 μg/ml.
Dissolve the lyophilized protein in ddH2O.
Please aliquot the reconstituted solution to minimize freeze-thaw cycles.
Storage
Lyophilized protein should be stored at < -20°C, though stable at room temperature for 3 weeks.
Reconstituted protein solution can be stored at 4-7°C for 2-7 days.
Aliquots of reconstituted samples are stable at < -20°C for 3 months.
Background
Peroxisomes are essential organelles that participate in multiple important metabolic processes, including the β-oxidation of fatty acids, plasmalogen synthesis, and the metabolism of reactive oxygen species (ROS). Peroxiredoxins is overexpressed in breast cancer tissues to a great extent suggesting that they has a proliferative effect and may be related to cancer development or progression. Peroxiredoxin 5 (PRDX5) is a thioredoxin peroxidase that belongs to the atypical 2-Cys class of the TSA/ahpC family of peroxiredoxins. PRDX5 is a widely expressed mitochondrial antioxidant enzyme that reduces hydrogen peroxide, alkyl hydroperoxides, and peroxynitrite. In human cells, this enzyme is present in the cytosol, mitochondria, peroxisomes, and nucleus.
