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.

Product Details

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.

Storage Information

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.
Guaranteed until date of expiry. Please see product label.
