Recommended name: Outer membrane protein AAlternative name(s): Outer membrane protein II
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.
Required for the action of colicins K and L and for the stabilization of mating aggregates in conjugation. Serves as a receptor for a number of T-even like phages. Also acts as a porin with low permeability that allows slow penetration of small solutes (By similarity).
