Organism: Porphyromonas gingivalis (strain ATCC 33277 / DSM 20709 / CIP 103683 / JCM 12257 / NCTC 11834 / 2561)


Source: E.coli

Tag Info: N-terminal 10xHis-tagged and C-terminal Myc-tagged

Expression Region: 47-383aa

Sequence Info: Full Length of Mature Protein

MW: 43.9 kDa

Purity: Greater than 85% as determined by SDS-PAGE.

Relevance: Structural subunit of the major fimbriae. These long, filamentous pili are attached to the cell surface; they mediate biofilm formation, adhesion onto host cells and onto other bacteria that are part of the oral microbiome. They play an important role in the invasion of periodontal tissues. Fimbriae and their constituents are major virulence factors. FimA proteins from different strains have highly divergent sequences, and this has been used for classification. The sequence-based classification correlates with pathogenicity.

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.

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.
