T-complex protein 1 subunit alpha, TCP-1-alpha, CCT-alpha, TCP1, CCT1, CCTA, D6S230E.
TCP1 is a molecular chaperone that is a member of the chaperonin containing TCP1 complex (CCT), also known as the TCP1 ring complex (TRiC). This complex consists of 2 identical stacked rings, each containing eight different proteins. Unfolded polypeptides penetrate the central cavity of the complex and are folded in an ATP-dependent manner. The TCP1 protein is found in the cytosol as a subunit of a hetero-oligomeric chaperone. TCP1 has a significant function in maintaining cellular homoeostasis by assisting the folding of many proteins such as the cytoskeletal components actin and tubulin.
TCP1 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 576 amino acids (1-556 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 62.5kDa. The TCP1 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile Filtered colorless solution.
The TCP1 solution (0.5 mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl Buffer (pH 8.0), 1mM DTT, 0.1mM PMSF and 10% 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 80.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
