|Purity||> 95 % by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analyses.|
|Biological Activity||Malic Enzyme activity was assayed spectrophotometrically at 340nm as described in Mandela and Sauer (1975). The standard reaction mixture contained 50 mM Tris-HCl, 3 mM MnCl2, 5 mM malate, 0.12 mM NADP+, 2.5 mM fumarate. Assay was performed in a Beckman spectrophotometer. The Km value is 1.5 ± 0.6 mM.|
|Physical Appearance||Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.|
|Formulation||Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered concentrated solution in PBS, pH 7.4.|
|Endotoxin||Less than 1 EU/μg of rHuME2, His as determined by LAL method.|
|Reconstitution||We recommend that this vial be briefly centrifuged prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Reconstitute in sterile distilled water or aqueous buffer containing 0.1 % BSA to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. Stock solutions should be apportioned into working aliquots and stored at ≤ -20 °C. Further dilutions should be made in appropriate buffered solutions.|
|Stability & Storage||Use a manual defrost freezer and avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
- 12 months from date of receipt, -20 to -70 °C as supplied.
- 1 month, 2 to 8 °C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.
- 3 months, -20 to -70 °C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.

|Background||NAD-dependent malic enzyme (ME2), mitochondrial is a protein that in humans is encoded by the ME2 gene. This gene encodes a mitochondrial NAD-dependent malic enzyme, a homotetrameric protein, which catalyzes the oxidative decarboxylation of malate to pyruvate. Three different isoforms of ME are known to be in mammalian tissues: a strictly cytosolic NADP+-dependent enzyme, an NADP+-dependent mitochondriail isoform, and a mitochondrial isoenzyme that is able to use both NAD+ and NADP+ but is more effective with NAD+. The mammalian isoforms size is about 62-64 kDa. A native size of 240,000 Da proposes a tetrameric structure for the active enzyme.|
