Pyruvate kinase isozymes M1/M2, EC 188.8.131.52, Pyruvate kinase muscle isozyme, Pyruvate kinase 2/3, Cytosolic thyroid hormone-binding protein, CTHBP, THBP1, M2PK, PKM2, PK3, PK2, PKM, TCB, OIP3, MGC3932, Tumor Type M2 Pyruvate Kinase.
Pyruvate kinase is a key enzyme in the glycolytic pathway. The M2 isoenzyme of pyruvate kinase is specifically expressed at high levels in tumor cells, and can be measured in plasma of patients with advanced breast cancer. The marker is useful for measuring disease activity, sensitivity to chemotherapy and recurrence.
PKM2 Mouse Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 554 amino acids (1-531 a.a) and having a molecular mass of 60.2kDa. PKM2 is fused to a 23 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
PKM2 protein solution (0.5mg/ml) containing 20mM Tris-HCl (pH 8.5), 0.2M NaCl, 1mM DTT and 30% glycerol.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please avoid freeze thaw cycles.
Greater than 85% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
