Prefoldin subunit 2, PFDN2, PFD2.
Prefoldin subunit 2 (PFDN2) belongs to the prefoldin beta subunit family. The PFDN2 protein is one of 6 subunits of prefoldin, which is a molecular chaperone complex that binds and stabilizes newly synthesized polypeptides, thus allowing them to fold correctly. PFDN2 binds specifically to cytosolic chaperonin (c-CPN) and transfers target proteins to it. PFDN2 also binds to a nascent polypeptide chain and promotes folding in an setting in which there are many competing pathways for nonnative proteins.
PFDN2 Human Recombinant fused with a 20 amino acid His tag at N-terminus produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 174 amino acids (1-154 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 18.8kDa. The PFDN2 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile Filtered colorless solution.
The PFDN2 solution (0.5 mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH8.0), 10% glycerol, 1mM DTT and 50mM NaCl.
Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks.
