Arylsulfatase A, Cerebroside-Sulfatase, ASA, Metachromatic Leucodystrophy, MLD, EC 188.8.131.52.
The enzyme Arylsulfatase A, also known as cerebroside-sulfatase, is responsible to break down sulfatides. The main molecule that Arylsulfatase A breaks down is cerebroside 3-sulfate into cerebroside and sulfate. The enzyme is encoded by the ARSA gene in humans. Phosphate can form a covalent bond with the Arylsulfatase A’s active site 3-oxoalanine, thus, inhibits the protein.
ARSA produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 498 amino acids (21-509a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 53.0kDa. (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 50-70kDa). ARSA is expressed with a 9 amino acid His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sf9, Baculovirus cells.
ARSA protein solution (0.25mg/ml) contains Phosphate Buffered Saline (pH 7.4) and 10% glycerol.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Specific activity is > 2,500 pmol/min/ug, and defined as the amount of enzyme that hydrolyze 4-Nitrocatechol at pH 5.0 at 37C.
