The shelf life is related to many factors, storage state, buffer ingredients, storage temperature and the stability of the protein itself. Generally, the shelf life of liquid form is 6 months at -20°C/-80°C. The shelf life of lyophilized form is 12 months at -20°C/-80°C.
Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Store working aliquots at 4°C for up to one week.
Functions as a nucleotide exchange factor (NEF) for Hsp70 chaperones which accelerates the release of ADP. Required for fully efficient Hsp70-mediated folding of proteins (By similarity).
