|Calculated MW||This protein is fused with 6×His tag at the N-terminus, has a calculated MW of 72 kDa. The predicted N-terminus is Gln 35. DTT-reduced Protein migrates as 20 kDa and 64 kDa due to glycosylation.|
|Other Names||PCSK9, FH3, HCHOLA3, LDLCQ1, NARC-1, NARC1, PC9, Proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9|
|Source||HEK 293 cells|
|Application Notes||Centrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in sterile PBS, pH 7.4 to a concentration of 100 µg/ml. Do not vortex. This solution can be stored at 2-8°C for up to 1 month. For extended storage, it is recommended to store at -20°C.|
|Storage||-20°C; Sterile filtered through a 0.22 micron filter. Lyophilized from 1 x PBS, pH 7.4. Generally 5-8% Mannitol or trehalose is added as a protectant before lyophilization.|

Proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9), is an enzyme which in humans is encoded by the PCSK9 gene. This gene encodes a proprotein convertase belonging to the proteinase K subfamily of the secretory subtilase family. This protein plays a major regulatory role in cholesterol homeostasis. PCSK9 binds to the epidermal growth factor-like repeat A (EGF-A) domain of the low-density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR), inducing LDLR degradation. PCSK9 may also have a role in the differentiation of cortical neurons. Mutations in this gene have been associated with a rare form of autosomal dominant familial hypercholesterolemia (HCHOLA3).
