Recombinant Enterobacteria phage T4 Fibritin (wac) | CSB-EP319157EDZ | Cusabio

Alternative Name(s): Collar protein Whisker antigen control protein

Gene Names: wac

Research Areas: Cell Biology

Organism: Enterobacteria phage T4 (Bacteriophage T4)


Source: E.coli

Tag Info: N-terminal 6xHis-SUMO-tagged

Expression Region: 2-487aa

Sequence Info: Full Length of Mature Protein

MW: 67.7 kDa

Purity: Greater than 90% as determined by SDS-PAGE.

Relevance: Chaperone responsible for attachment of long tail fibers to virus particle. During phage assembly, twelve fibritin molecules attach to the phage neck via gp13: six molecules forming the collar and six molecules forming the whiskers.

Reference: "gpwac of the T4-type bacteriophages: structure, function, and evolution of a segmented coiled-coil protein that controls viral infectivity."Letarov A., Manival X., Desplats C., Krisch H.M.J. Bacteriol. 187:1055-1066(2005)

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.

Function: Chaperone involved in tail fiber assembly and retraction. Acts as a chaperone helping to attach the long tail fibers to the virus during the assembly process. During phage assembly, twelve fibritin molecules attach to the phage neck via gp13

Tissue Specificity:


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.
