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.

Involvement in disease
Defects in CHD7 are a cause of CHARGE syndrome (CHARGES) [MIM:214800]. This syndrome, which is a common cause of congenital anomalies, is characterized by a non-random pattern of congenital anomalies including choanal atresia and malformations of the heart, inner ear, and retina. Genetic variations in CHD7 are associated with susceptibility to idiopathic scoliosis type 3 (IS3) [MIM:608765]. Idiopathic scoliosis (IS) is the most common spinal deformity in children. Defects in CHD7 are the cause of Kallmann syndrome type 5 (KAL5) [MIM:612370]. Kallmann syndrome is a disorder that associates hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and anosmia. Anosmia or hyposmia is related to the absence or hypoplasia of the olfactory bulbs and tracts. Hypogonadism is due to deficiency in gonadotropin-releasing hormone and probably results from a failure of embryonic migration of gonadotropin-releasing hormone-synthesizing neurons. In some patients other developmental anomalies can be present, which include renal agenesis, cleft lip and/or palate, selective tooth agenesis, and bimanual synkinesis. In some cases anosmia may be absent or inconspicuous. Defects in CHD7 are a cause of idiopathic hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (IHH) [MIM:146110]. IHH is defined as a deficiency of the pituitary secretion of follicle-stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone, which results in the impairment of pubertal maturation and of reproductive function.
Belongs to the SNF2/RAD54 helicase family. Contains 2 chromo domains. Contains 1 helicase ATP-binding domain. Contains 1 helicase C-terminal domain.
Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
