Liquid or Lyophilized powder
Note: We will preferentially ship the format that we have in stock, however, if you have any special requirement for the format, please remark your requirement when placing the order, we will prepare according to your demand.
If the delivery form is liquid, the default storage buffer is Tris/PBS-based buffer, 5%-50% glycerol. If the delivery form is lyophilized powder, the buffer before lyophilization is Tris/PBS-based buffer, 6% Trehalose, pH 8.0.
We recommend that this vial be briefly centrifuged prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Please reconstitute protein in deionized sterile water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL.We recommend to add 5-50% of glycerol (final concentration) and aliquot for long-term storage at -20°C/-80°C. Our default final concentration of glycerol is 50%. Customers could use it as reference.
Troubleshooting and FAQs
Storage Condition
Store at -20°C/-80°C upon receipt, aliquoting is necessary for mutiple use. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Shelf Life
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.
Lead Time
3-7 business days
Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Store working aliquots at 4°C for up to one week.

The region for expressing recombinant Human IZUMO1 contains amino acids 22-292. This IZUMO1 protein is theoretically predicted to have a molecular weight of 38.1 kDa. This protein is generated in a e.coli-based system. The IZUMO1 gene fragment has been modified by fusing the N-terminal 10xHis tag and C-terminal Myc tag, providing convenience in detecting and purifying the recombinant IZUMO1 protein during the following stages.

The human Izumo sperm-egg fusion protein 1 (IZUMO1) is a transmembrane protein found on the surface of sperm cells. It plays a crucial role in the process of fertilization by mediating the fusion between sperm and egg during gamete interaction. IZUMO1 is essential for establishing the initial contact between the sperm and the egg, leading to the formation of a fertilization pore and subsequent fusion of the two gametes' membranes. The molecular interactions involving IZUMO1 are part of the intricate and highly regulated mechanisms that govern the fusion event, ensuring successful fertilization. Understanding IZUMO1's function provides valuable insights into reproductive biology and potential avenues for contraceptive development.

Target Background

Essential sperm cell-surface protein required for fertilization by acting as a ligand for IZUMO1R/JUNO receptor on egg. The IZUMO1:IZUMO1R/JUNO interaction is a necessary adhesion event between sperm and egg that is required for fertilization but is not sufficient for cell fusion. The ligand-receptor interaction probably does not act as a membrane 'fusogen'.
