Cleaved into the following 2 chains:
1. Gamma-glutamyltranspeptidase large chain
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.
Cleaves the gamma-glutamyl bond of periplasmic glutathione (gamma-Glu-Cys-Gly), glutathione conjugates, and other gamma-glutamyl compounds. The metabolism of glutathione releases free glutamate and the dipeptide cysteinyl-glycine, which is hydrolyzed to cysteine and glycine by dipeptidases; it may function in amino acid uptake/salvage, or possibly in peptidoglycan linkage. Catalyzes the hydrolysis and transpeptidation of many gamma-glutamyl compounds (including some D-gamma-glutamyl substrates), with a preference for basic and aromatic amino acids as acceptors
