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.
Acts as a semaphorin-like protein and binds to host plexin C1 receptor. May alter the movement of host plexin C1-expressing cells including dendritic cells, monocytes, or granulocytes in the proximity of infected cells. May also regulate host cell cytoskeleton of neighboring cells to improve viral infection (By similarity).
