FOLH1, also known as glutamate carboxypeptidase 2 (GCPII), is a single pass type 2 membrane protein which belongs to the peptidase M28 family. FOLH1 is highly produced in prostate epithelium. FOLH1 is also found in ovary, live, stomach, small intestine colon, urinary bladder, kidney, testis, and the capillary endothelium of a variety of tumours. Therefore, it plays a role in directed imaging and therapy of recurrent of metastatic disease. FOLH1 is a zinc metalloenzyme that resides in membranes and catalyses the hydrolysis of N-acetylaspartylglutamate to glutamate and N-acetylaspartate.
FOLH1 produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 717 amino acids (44-750 a.a) and having a molecular mass of 80.7kDa.
FOLH1 is expressed with a 6 amino acid His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sf9, Baculovirus cells.
FOLH1 protein solution (0.25mg/ml) contains Phosphate buffered saline (pH 7.4) 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.
