The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
- First try to dissolve a small amount of peptide in either water or buffer. The more charged residues on a peptide, the more soluble it is in aqueous solutions. - If the peptide doesn’t dissolve try an organic solvent e.g. DMSO, then dilute using water or buffer. - Consider that any solvent used must be compatible with your assay. If a peptide does not dissolve and you need to recover it, lyophilise to remove the solvent. - Gentle warming and sonication can effectively aid peptide solubilisation. If the solution is cloudy or has gelled the peptide may be in suspension rather than solubilised. - Peptides containing cysteine are easily oxidised, so should be prepared in solution just prior to use.

FunctionSNARE involved in vesicular transport from the late endosomes to the trans-Golgi network.
Involvement in diseaseGenetic variations in STX16 may be a cause of pseudohypoparathyroidism type 1B (PHP1B) [MIM:603233]. Pseudohypoparathyroidism refers to a heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by resistance to parathyroid hormone (PTH). PHP1B is characterized by PTH-resistant hypocalcemia and hyperphosphatemia. Patients affected with PHP1B lack developmental defects characteristic of Albright hereditary osteodystrophy, and typically show no other endocrine abnormalities besides resistance to PTH. In some cases microdeletions involving STX16 appear to cause loss of methylation at exon A/B of the GNAS gene, resulting in PHP1B.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the syntaxin family. Contains 1 t-SNARE coiled-coil homology domain.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm and Golgi apparatus membrane.
