The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use at an assay dependent dilution.
Application notesIs unsuitable for WB.
FunctionStorage protein of egg white. Lack protease inhibitory activity.
Tissue specificityMajor protein of egg white.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the serpin family. Ov-serpin subfamily.
Post-translational modificationsThe signal sequence is not cleaved. The functional signal for membrane translocation of ovalbumin becomes accessible when the nascent chain is 50 to 60 residues long. The hydrophobic sequence which lies between residues 27 and 43 folds back on the preceding residues to form an amphipathic hairpin structure which is the signal element recognized by the membrane.
