Mortality factor 4-like protein 2, MORF-related gene X protein, Protein MSL3-2, Transcription factor-like protein MRGX, MORF4L2, KIAA0026, MRGX, MORFL2.
MORF4L2 belongs to the mortality factor (MORF) family of transcriptional regulator which is involved in cell growth, regulation and senescence. MORF4L2 localizes to the nucleus, and it has a protein kinase C phosphorylation site as well as a tyrosine phosphorylation site. MORF4L2 interacts with the Rb tumor suppressor through its helix-loop-helix and leucine zipper regions. Furthermore, MORF4L2 has histone deacetylase activity and can either repress or promote the activity of the B-Myb promoter depending on the tissue.
MORF4L2 produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 308 amino acids (1-288 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 34.4kDa (Molecular weight on SDS-PAGE will appear higher).
MORF4L2 is fused to a 20 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
