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.
Ligand for members of the frizzled family of seven transmembrane receptors. Probable developmental protein. May be a signaling molecule which affects the development of discrete regions of tissues. Is likely to signal over only few cell diameters. Binds receptor tyrosine kinase cam-1
Expressed in intestine, some head neurons and ventral nerve cord and pharyngeal neurons (PubMed:19561603). Expressed in the tail and weakly expressed in the vulva and body wall muscles (PubMed:20711352). Expressed highly in posterior dorsal and ventral mu
