|Other Names||Lanosterol synthase, 3-epoxysqualene--lanosterol cyclase, Oxidosqualene--lanosterol cyclase, OSC, hOSC, LSS, OSC|
|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||Catalyzes the cyclization of (S)-2,3 oxidosqualene to lanosterol, a reaction that forms the sterol nucleus. Through the production of lanosterol may regulate lens protein aggregation and increase transparency.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Peripheral membrane protein|
