UPF0042 nucleotide-binding protein in ptsN-ptsO intergenic region
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.
Modulates the synthesis of GlmS, by affecting the processing and stability of the regulatory small RNA GlmZ. When glucosamine-6-phosphate (GlcN6P) concentrations are high in the cell, RapZ binds GlmZ and targets it to cleavage by RNase E. Consequently, GlmZ is inactivated and unable to activate GlmS synthesis. Under low GlcN6P concentrations, RapZ is sequestered and inactivated by an other regulatory small RNA, GlmY, preventing GlmZ degradation and leading to synthesis of GlmS.
