Human cytomegalovirus (strain AD169) (HHV-5) (HCMV)
45 kDa immediate-early protein 2
Short name= IE2
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.
Stimulates viral early and late gene expression and thus play a crucial role in the regulation of productive infection. In addition, activates quiescent cells to reenter the cell cycle and upregulates several E2F-responsive genes, which are responsible for pushing the cell into S phase. In S-phase, inhibits cellular DNA synthesis and blocks further cell cycle progression.
