Heptaprenylglyceryl phosphate synthase
Short name= HepGP synthase
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.
Prenyltransferase that catalyzes in vivo the transfer of the heptaprenyl moiety of heptaprenyl pyrophosphate (HepPP; 35 carbon atoms) to the C3 hydroxyl of sn-glycerol-1-phosphate (G1P), producing heptaprenylglyceryl phosphate (HepGP). This reaction is an ether-bond-formation step in the biosynthesis of archaea-type G1P-based membrane lipids found in Bacillales.
