Alpha-synuclein, Non-A beta component of AD amyloid, Non-A4 component of amyloid precursor, NACP, PD1, PARK1, PARK4, MGC110988, a-Synuclein, SNCA.
a-Synuclein (amino acids 1-140), an acidic neuronal protein of 140 amino acids, is extremely heat-resistant and is natively unfolded with an extended structure primarily composed of random coils. a-synuclein has been suggested to be implicated in the pathogenesis of Parkinson’s disease and related neurodegenerative disorders, and more recently, to be an important regulatory component of vesicular transport in neuronal cells. Moreover, recent studies have shown that a-synuclein has chaperone activity and that this activity is lost upon removing its C-terminal acidic tail (amino acids 96-140).
A-Synuclein Delta-NAC Human Recombinant which is a deletion mutant of the a-synuclein that lacks the NAC region (amino acid 61-95), produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain of 111 amino acids having a molecular mass of 11.9kDa (molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear higher), with 6 amino acids added as a linker. The Recombinant Human a-Synuclein Delta-NAC is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile filtered colorless solution.
The SNCA Delta-NAC protein solution (1mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl buffer pH 7.5 and 100mM NaCl.
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 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
