Calmodulin is a ubiquitous 16.6 kDa protein found in all eukaryote cells that is involved with the control of a large number of calcium sensitive enzymes. It can bind to and regulate a number of different protein targets, thereby affecting many different cellular functions.
- Target Species
- Product Form
- Purified calmodulin from bovine brain - lyophilized
- Reconstitute to a concentration of 0.1 - 1.0 mg/ml in distilled water. Care should be taken during reconstitution as the protein may appear as a film at the bottom of the vial. Bio-Rad recommend that the vial is gently mixed after reconstitution.
- Purified by ion-exchange chromatography followed by gel-filtration
- Preservative Stabilisers
- 2 mM EDTA.
- More than 40,000 units per 1 mg of protein.One unit will stimulate 0.016 activated units of phosphodiesterase, 3'5'-cyclic nucleotide, P 0520, to 50% of the maximum activity of the enzyme when saturated with activator.
- > 95%. Determined by SDS-PAGE.
- Prior to reconstitution store at -20oC.
After reconstitution store at -20oC.
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended. This product should be stored undiluted. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the protein.
