Gamma-crystallin D, Gamma-D-crystallin , Gamma-crystallin 1, CRYGD.
CRYGD is a member of the beta/gamma-crystallin family. Crystallins are the principal structural components of the vertebrate eye lens. The mammalian lens crystallins are divided into alpha, beta, and gamma families. Gamma-crystallins are involved in cataract formation. Defects in the CRYGD gene are responsible for cataract autosomal dominant (ADC), cataract congenital non-nuclear polymorphic autosomal dominant (CCP), cataract congenital cerulean type 3 (CCA3) and cataract crystalline aculeiform (CACA).
CRYGD Mouse Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 197 amino acids (1-174 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 23.5kDa.
CRYGD is fused to a 23 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
CRYGD protein solution (1mg/ml) containing 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH 8.0), 0.1M NaCl 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.
