Gas vesicle structural protein
Short name= GVP
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.
Gas vesicles are small, hollow, gas filled protein structures that are found in several microbial planktonic microorganisms. They allow the positioning of the organism at the favorable depth for growth. GvpA type proteins form the essential core of the structure.
