|Calculated MW||Influenza A virus (A/Thailand/1(KAN-1)/2004 (H5N1)) Neuraminidase (NA) is fused with a polyhistidine tag at the N-terminus, and has a calculated MW of 46.1 kDa. The predicted N-terminus is His 36. DTT-reduced Protein migrates as 48 kDa in SDS-PAGE|
|Other Names||NA, Neuraminidase|
|Gene Source||Influenza A Virus|
|Results||Measured by its ability to cleave a fluorogenic substrate, 2'-(4-Methylumbelliferyl)-α-D-N-acetylneuraminic acid. One unit is defined as the amount of enzyme required to cleave 1 nmole of 2'-(4-Methylumbelliferyl)-α-D-N-acetylneuraminic acid per minute at pH 7.5 at 37°C|
|Target/Specificity||Influenza A virus / Neuraminidase (NA)|
|Application Notes||Centrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in PBS, pH 7.4. Do not vortex.|
|Storage||-20°C; Lyophilized from 0.22 µm filtered solution in PBS, pH 7.4. Normally Mannitol or Trehalose are added as protectants before lyophilization.|

Neuraminidase (NA) and hemagglutinin (HA) are major membrane glycoproteins found on the surface of influenza virus. Hemagglutinin binds to the sialic acid-containing receptors on the surface of host cells during initial infection and at the end of an infectious cycle. Neuraminidase, on the other hand, cleaves the HA-sialic acid bondage from the newly formed virions and the host cell receptors during budding. Neuraminidase thus is described as a receptor-destroying enzyme which facilitates virus release and efficient spread of the progeny virus from cell to cell.
