Recombinant Human Retinol-Binding Protein 4/RBP4
Recombinant Human Retinol-Binding Protein 4 is produced by our E.coli expression system and the target gene encoding Glu19-Leu201 is expressed. Bon Opus Cat. #C169
BackgroundRetinol Binding Protein 4 (RBP4) is a member of the Lipocalin family and in the blood. RBP4 is the specific vector for retinol. RBP4 is expressed and secreted by adipose tissue, and is associated with insulin resistance. RBP4 delivers retinol from the liver stores to the peripheral tissues. In plasma, the RBP-retinol complex interacts with transthyretin to prevents its loss by filtration through the kidney glomeruli. Defects in RBP4 cause retinol-binding protein deficiency and can cause night vision problems.
FormulationLyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution of 50mM TrisHCl, 10mM CaCl2, 150mM NaCl, pH 7.5 .
