Rnase P protein, AKA rnpA, is an important enzyme consisting of the C5 protein (which encoded by rnpA) and the catalytic M1 RNA (encoded by rnpB) subunits. rnpA is ribonucleoprotein that catalyzes the removal of the 50- leader elements of precursor tRNAs and generates the mature 50-end of tRNAs. This step is critical for theformation of functional tRNA molecules in bacteria, archaea and eukarya. More importantly, it has lately been established that RNase P is essential for the endonucleolytic separation of certain polycistronic tRNA transcripts such as valV valW, leuQ leuP leuV and secG leuU. Therefore, it was hypothesized that the essential function of RNase P might be related to the complete absence of a particular tRNAthat was dependent on the enzyme for initial separation from polycistronic transcripts.
RNPA E.Coli Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 119 amino acids (1-119a.a) and having a molecular mass of 13.7kDa.
RNPA is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
RNPA protein solution (0.25mg/ml) in Phosphate-Buffered Saline (pH 7.4) and 10% Glycerol.
