Introduction

HEXA is the alpha subunit of the lysosomal enzyme beta-hexosaminidase which, combined with the cofactor GM2 activator protein, catalyzes the degradation of the ganglioside GM2, and other molecules having N-acetyl hexosamines terminus. The two subunits composing Beta-hexosaminidase, alpha and beta, belong to the glycosyl hydrolases family and are encoded by distinct genes. Alpha subunit gene mutations can cause Tay-Sachs disease (GM2-gangliosidosis type I).

Description

HEXA Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 464 amino acids (89-529 a.a) and having a molecular mass of 52.9 kDa.
HEXA is fused to a 23 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus.

Source

Escherichia Coli.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered clear solution.

Formulation

HEXA protein solution (1mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH 8.0), 0.4M UREA and 10% glycerol.
