|Other Names||mRNA-capping enzyme, HCAP1, HCE, Polynucleotide 5'-triphosphatase, mRNA 5'-triphosphatase, TPase, mRNA guanylyltransferase, GTP--RNA guanylyltransferase, GTase, RNGTT, CAP1A|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP6617b was selected from the C-term region of human RNGTT. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|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||Bifunctional mRNA-capping enzyme exhibiting RNA 5'- triphosphatase activity in the N-terminal part and mRNA guanylyltransferase activity in the C-terminal part. Catalyzes the first two steps of cap formation: by removing the gamma-phosphate from the 5'-triphosphate end of nascent mRNA to yield a diphosphate end, and by transferring the gmp moiety of GTP to the 5'-diphosphate terminus.|
|Tissue Location||Isoform 1 and isoform 4 (at a lesser extent) are expressed in cerebrum, cerebellum, thyroid, lung, heart, liver, kidney, spleen, large intestine, testis, skin and muscle|
