Recombinant Proteins  >  α-Synuclein & β-Synuclein  >>  Recombinant DJ-1 (PARK7) Protein, Human, GST tagged (GST-DJ-1)

Product Name Recombinant DJ - 1 (PARK7) Protein, Human, GST tagged (GST - DJ - 1)
Size 10 g
Catalog # AS-72220-10
US$ $100
Purity Greater than 95% as determined by SDS-PAGE.

The sequence (Accession # NP_001116849) corresponding to the full length human DJ-1 protein along with N-terminal GST tag was expressed in E. coli. The recombinant DJ-1 protein was purified from bacterial lysate using GST affinity chromatography. GST tag was not removed. The molecular weight of the recombinant GST-DJ-1protein is 47.3 kDa.

DJ-1 (also known as PARK7, Parkinson disease protein 7) is a 189 amino acid protein that is ubiquitously expressed in many organs including brain, liver, kidney, pancreas, heart, and others1-5. Although DJ-1 was originally discovered as a novel oncogene product, it was found to play several other roles in biological processes. They include regulation of RNA binding activity, fertility, anti-oxidative stress, and linked to the early onset of Parkinson disease when mutated1-5. Recently it was demonstrated that DJ-1 can act as an atypical peroxiredoxin-like peroxidase5 and poses protease activity4.
