The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 35 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
FunctionAssociates with the EF-Tu.GDP complex and induces the exchange of GDP to GTP. It remains bound to the aminoacyl-tRNA.EF-Tu.GTP complex up to the GTP hydrolysis stage on the ribosome.
Tissue specificityExpressed in all tissues, with the highest levels of expression in skeletal muscle, liver and kidney.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in TSFM are the cause of combined oxidative phosphorylation deficiency type 3 (COXPD3) [MIM:610505]. Defects in the mitochondrial oxidative phosphorylation system result in devastating, mainly multisystem, diseases. COXPD3 symptoms include severe metabolic acidosis with encephalomyopathy or with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Patients show a severe defect in mitochondrial translation leading to a failure to assemble adequate amounts of three of the oxidative phosphorylation complexes.
