Recombinant Human α-Crystallin A Chain/CRYAA (C-6His)
Recombinant Human alpha-Crystallin A Chain is produced by our E.coli expression system and the target gene encoding Met1-Ser173 is expressed with a 6His tag at the C-terminus. Bon Opus Cat. #CF01
BackgroundAlpha-Crystallin A Chain (CRYAA) belongs to the small heat shock protein (HSP20) family and can be induced by heat shock. The expression of CRYAA is preferentially restricted to the lens cell. CRYAA may contribute to the transparency and refractive index of the lens. CRYAA has chaperone-like activity, preventing aggregation of various proteins under a wide range of stress conditions. Two additional functions of CRYAA are an autokinase activity and participation in the intracellular architecture.
FormulationLyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution of PBS, 2mM EDTA, pH 8.0.
