Introduction

Ribulose-phosphate 3-epimerase (RPE) is a member of the ribulose-phosphate 3-epimerase family. RPE is the enzyme which converts D-ribulose 5-phosphate into D-xylulose 5-phosphate in Calvin's reductive pentose phosphate cycle. Therefore, the RPE enzyme has one substrate, D-ribulose 5-phosphate, and one product, D-xylulose 5-phosphate. RPE participates in three metabolic pathways: pentose phosphate pathway, pentose and glucuronate interconversions, and carbon fixation.

Description

RPE Human Recombinant produced in E.coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 252 amino acids (1-228) and having a molecular mass of 27.5kDa.
RPE is fused to a 24 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source

Escherichia Coli.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered clear solution.

Formulation

The RPE solution (0.5mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH 8.0), 2mM DTT, 30% glycerol and 200mM NaCl.

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.
