Introduction

Diphosphomevalonate decarboxylase (MVD) catalyzes the conversion of mevalonate pyrophosphate into isopentenyl pyrophosphate in one of the early steps in cholesterol biosynthesis. MVD decarboxylates and dehydrates its substrate while hydrolyzing ATP. MVD is expressed in the heart, skeletal muscle, lung, liver, brain, pancreas, kidney and placenta.

Description

MVD Human Recombinant produced in E.coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 420 amino acids (1-400) and having a molecular mass of 45.6kDa.
MVD is fused to a 20 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source

E.coli.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered colorless solution.

Formulation

The MVD solution (0.5mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH8.0), 20% glycerol and 1mM DTT.

Stability

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.

Purity

Greater than 85% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
