||Recombinant Human BFSP1 protein, fused to His-tag, was expressed in E.coli and purified by Ni-sepharose.
||More than 99% of the vertebrate ocular lens is comprised of terminally differentiated lens fiber cells. Two lens-specific intermediate filament-like proteins, CP49 (also known as phakinin) and the protein product of this gene, filensin, are expressed only after fiber cell differentiation has begun. Both proteins are found in a structurally unique cytoskeletal element that is referred to as the beaded filament (BF). Mutations in this gene are the cause of autosomal recessive cortical juvenile-onset cataract. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
||The protein is stored in PBS buffer at -20℃. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing cycles.
||1M PBS (58mM Na2HPO4,17mM NaH2PO4, 68mM NaCl, pH8. ) added with 300mM Imidazole and 0.7% Sarcosyl, 15%glycerol.
