Glutamate--cysteine ligase GshA
Short name= GCS
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.
Catalyzes the synthesis of gamma-glutamylcysteine (gamma-GC) (By similarity). This compound is used as substrate for the biosynthesis of the low-molecular thiol compound ergothioneine
Glutamate--cysteine ligase type 2 family, EgtA subfamily
