PRDX2, Peroxiredoxin-2 (EC:188.8.131.52), TSA, Thioredoxin peroxidase 1, Thioredoxin-dependent peroxide reductase 1, Thiol-specific antioxidant protein, Prdx2, Tdpx1, Tpx.
PRDX2 is part of the peroxiredoxin family of antioxidant enzymes, which reduce hydrogen peroxide and alkyl hydroperoxides. PRDX2 takes part as an antioxidant protective role in cells, and contributes to the antiviral activity of CD8(+) T-cells. PRDX2 has proliferative effect in cancer development or progression.
If PRDX2 protection is insufficient against peroxidases, the DNA damage results in neurological disease such as Alzheimer's or DNA damage leading to cancer.
PRDX2 Mouse Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 222 amino acids (1-198 a.a) and having a molecular mass of 24.3kDa. PRDX2 is fused to a 24 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
PRDX2 protein solution (1mg/ml) containing 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH8.0) and 10% Glycerol 1mM DTT.
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.
