Short name= c-Mip
Truncated c-Maf-inducing protein
Short name= Tc-Mip
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.
Plays a role in T-cell signaling pathway. Isoform 2 may play a role in T-helper 2 (Th2) signaling pathway and seems to represent the first proximal signaling protein that links T-cell receptor-mediated signal to the activation of c-Maf Th2 specific factor.
Isoform 1 is expressed in peripheral blood mononuclear cells and kidney. Lower expression in brain and liver. Expression is down-regulated in activated cells. Isoform 2 is expressed in lymphocyte precursors, however, expression shuts down during maturatio
