||Recombinant Human HSP47 produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 439 amino acids (18-418 aa) and having a molecular mass of 48.9 kDa. HSP47 human recombinant is fused to 37 amino acid His Tag at N-terminus and purified by convential chromatogrpahy techniques.
||SERPINH1 is part of the serpin superfamily of serine proteinase inhibitors. SEPINH1 expression is induced by heat shock. HSP47 localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum lumen and binds collagen therefore it is a molecular chaperone which takes part in the maturation of collagen molecules, facilitating the folding and assembly of procollagen molecules, retaining unfolded molecules within the ER, and assisting the transport of correctly folded-molecules from the ER to Golgi apparatus. Autoantibodies to HSP47 protein have been found in rheumatoid arthritis. SERPINH1 binds specifically to collagen and acts as a chaperone in the biosynthetic pathway of collagen.
||The SERPINH1 protein solution (1mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl, pH-8 & 10% Glycerol.
||Greater than 90.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
||Sterile filtered colorless solution.
