Retinoid-binding protein 7, Cellular retinoic acid-binding protein 4, CRABP4, CRBP4, Cellular retinoic acid-binding protein IV, CRABP-IV, RBP7, MGC70641.
RBP7 is a member of a superfamily of small cytoplasmic proteins which interact with hydrophobic ligands. RBP7 is cytoplasmic protein which, like CRBP I and CRBP II, forms ?-barrel structures and participates in the intracellular transport of retinol. RBP7 is a newly identified cellular retinol carrier, which is expressed in the kidney, heart and transverse colon in humans.
RBP7 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 154 amino acids (1-134 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 17.6kDa. The RBP7 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile Filtered colorless solution.
The RBP7 solution (0.5 mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH8.0), 0.2M NaCl, 2mM DTT and 20% glycerol.
Store 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.
Greater than 90.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
