4-hydroxy-2-oxovalerate aldolase 2
Short name= HOA 2
4-hydroxy-2-keto-pentanoic acid aldolase 2
4-hydroxy-2-oxopentanoate aldolase 2
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 retro-aldol cleavage of 4-hydroxy-2-oxopentanoate to pyruvate and acetaldehyde. Is involved in the meta-cleavage pathway for the degradation of aromatic compounds.
