Calsequestrin is the major calcium storage protein of the sarcoplasmic reticulum. Intraluminar Ca2+ binds to calsequestrin during diastole to prevent Ca2+ precipitation and to lower its free ionic concentration to facilitate efficient storage. During systole, Calsequestrin coordinately releases ~40-50 Ca2+ ions per molecule for each contraction-relaxation cycle by an uncertain mechanism. Calsequestrin has been shown to be of major importance in the regulation of cardiac excitation-contraction coupling.
||Lyophilized CASQ2 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution CASQ2 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
||The protein was lyophilized from a concentrated solution (1mg/ml) containing 10mM Tris-HCl and 1mM EGTA.
