Recombinant Human Ribose-Phosphate Pyrophosphokinase 2/PRPS2 (C-6His)
Recombinant Human PRPS2 is produced by our Mammalian expression system and the target gene encoding Pro2-Leu318 is expressed with a 6His tag at the C-terminus. Bon Opus Cat. #C804 (BP007)
BackgroundRibose-Phosphate Pyrophosphokinase 2 (PRPS2) is a phosphoribosyl pyrophosphate synthetase that belongs to the ribose-phosphate pyrophosphokinase family. PRPS2 is a homodimer. The active form is probably an hexamer composed of three homodimers. PRPS2 catalyzes the synthesis of phosphoribosylpyrophosphate (PRPP) that is essential for nucleotide synthesis. PRPS2 catalyzes the synthesis of 5-phosphoribosyl 1-pyrophosphate from ATP and D-ribose 5-phosphate. In addition, PRPS2 plays a central role in the synthesis of purines and pyrimidines.
FormulationLyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution of 20mM PB,150mM NaCl,pH7.4.
