4-hydroxy-2-keto-pentanoic acid aldolase
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.
Catalyzes the retro-aldol cleavage of 4-hydroxy-2-oxopentanoate to pyruvate and acetaldehyde. Is involved in the meta-cleavage pathway for the degradation of aromatic compounds.
