Shipping: shipped on dry ice

Storage Conditions: store at -80 °C
avoid freeze/thaw cycles

Shelf Life: 12 months

Molecular Weight: 75 kDa

Purity: > 90 % (SDS-PAGE)

Form: liquid (Supplied in 25 mM HEPES pH 7.2, 40 mM NaCl and 5 mM DTT)

Activity: 1 pmol of REP-1 will mediate transfer of 2 pmol of geranylgeraniol by RabGGTase onto 1 pmol of Rab7 in 3 minutes.

C-terminal His-tagged REP-1 (Rab escort protein-1) binds to a wide range of RabGGTase with nanomolar affinities and supports the prenylation of RabGTPase mediated by RabGGTase.
