Tag Info: N-terminal 6xHis-tagged
Expression Region: 721-1055aa
Sequence Info: Partial
MW: 38.3 kDa
Purity: Greater than 85% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Relevance: Virulence factor that plays an important role in immune evasion. Lyses human lymphocytes and monocytes. Binds to the LFA-1 integrin on the surface of the host cell and to cholesterol-containing membranes, which probably results in large LtxA-LFA-1 clusters in lipid rafts. Shows also beta-hemolytic activity on certain types of growth media.

Storage: The shelf life is related to many factors, storage state, buffer ingredients, storage temperature and the stability of the protein itself. Generally, the shelf life of liquid form is 6 months at -20?/-80?. The shelf life of lyophilized form is 12 months at -20?/-80?.
Notes: Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Store working aliquots at 4? for up to one week.

Involvement in disease:
Subcellular Location: Cell outer membrane, Peripheral membrane protein, Extracellular side, Secreted
Protein Families: RTX prokaryotic toxin (TC 1.C.11) family
Form: Liquid or Lyophilized powder
Buffer: If the delivery form is liquid, the default storage buffer is Tris/PBS-based buffer, 5%-50% glycerol. If the delivery form is lyophilized powder, the buffer before lyophilization is Tris/PBS-based buffer, 6% Trehalose, pH 8.0.
Reconstitution: We recommend that this vial be briefly centrifuged prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Please reconstitute protein in deionized sterile water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL.We recommend to add 5-50% of glycerol (final concentration) and aliquot for long-term storage at -20?/-80?. Our default final concentration of glycerol is 50%. Customers could use it as reference.
