|Other Names||Sperm-egg fusion protein Juno, Folate receptor 4, Folate receptor delta, FR-delta, IZUMO1 receptor protein JUNO, IZUMO1R (HGNC:32565), FOLR4, JUNO|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Receptor for IZUMO1 present at the cell surface of oocytes (oolemma), which is essential for gamete recognition and fertilization. The IZUMO1:IZUMO1R/JUNO interaction is a necessary adhesion event between sperm and egg that is required for fertilization but is not sufficient for cell fusion. The ligand- receptor interaction probably does not act as a membrane 'fusogen'. Does not bind folate (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Lipid-anchor, GPI-anchor. Note=GPI-anchored at the oolemma|
