Glutaminyl-Peptide Cyclotransferase, Glutaminyl Cyclase, QC,
Glutaminyl-TRNA Cyclotransferase, Glutamyl
Cyclase, EC 126.96.36.199, SQC, EC, GCT, Glutaminyl-peptide cyclotransferase.
Glutaminyl-Peptide Cyclotransferase, also known as QPCT is a member of
the glutaminyl-peptide cyclotransferase family. QPCT is responsible for the
biosynthesis of pyroglutamyl peptides. Furthermore, QPCT is partial against
acidic and tryptophan residues adjacent to the N-terminal glutaminyl residue
and a lack of importance of chain length following the second residue. QPCT
catalyzes N-terminal pyroglutamate formation, also in vitro, it catalyzes
pyroglutamate formation of N-terminally truncated form of APP amyloid-beta
QPCT produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 339 amino acids (29-361a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 38.7kDa (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 28-40kDa). QPCT is expressed with a 6 amino acid His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile Filtered colorless solution.
QPCT protein solution (0.5mg/ml) contains Phosphate
Buffered Saline (pH 7.4) and 10% glycerol.
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.
Greater than 90.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
