a-Synuclein (amino acids 1-140), an acidic neuronal protein of 140 amino acids, is extremely heat-resistant and is natively unfolded with an extended structure primarily composed of random coils. a-synuclein has been suggested to be implicated in the pathogenesis of Parkinson’s disease and related neurodegenerative disorders, and more recently, to be an important regulatory component of vesicular transport in neuronal cells. Moreover, recent studies have shown that a-synuclein has chaperone activity and that this activity is lost upon removing its C-terminal acidic tail (amino acids 96-140).
A-Synuclein 1-60 Human Recombinant which is a deletion mutant of the a-synuclein amino acids 1-60 and contains the N-terminal amphipathic domain, produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain of 60 amino acids having a molecular mass of 6.1kDa. The Recombinant Human a-Synuclein 1-60 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile filtered colorless solution.
The SNCA 1-60 protein solution (1mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl buffer pH 7.5 and 100mM NaCl.
