Calmodulin, Recombinant Human
Calmodulin, Recombinant Human is a full length (Met1- lys149, Accession # P62158) human recombinant calmodulin protein expressed in E. coli.
Calmodulin is a ubiquitous calcium- binding protein present in all eukaryotic cells and some cell organelles. Calmodulin plays a pivotal role in calcium signal transduction pathway and once it is activated by calcium, it binds to several target proteins downstream including phosphates and kinases and affects many cellular functions.
Calmodulin mediates many processes including inflammation, metabolism, apoptosis, smooth muscle contraction, intracellular movement, short-term and long-term memory and the immune response.
- Single band purity, >99 % by SDS-PAGE
- Human calmodulin shares 100 % amino acid sequence homoogy with chicken, bovine, rat, mouse, zebrafish, sheep calmodulin and thus can be used for calmodulin functional studies across these species.
- Full length (Met1- lys149, Accession # P62158) human recombinant calmodulin protein expressed in E. coli.
- Molecular weight: 16.8 kD ( NOTE: There is shift in mobility of calmodulin on SDS-PAGE depending upon its interaction with and without calcium and so the obesrved molecular weight on SDS-PAGE gel may vary)
- Purity: >99 % by SDS-PAGE. Single band purity
