Alternative Name(s): Epididymis-specific glutathione peroxidase-like protein Short name:EGLP
Relevance: May constitute a glutathione peroxidase-like protective system against peroxide damage in sperm membrane lipids. Since the purified porcine enzyme has very little activity towards hydrogen peroxide or organic hydroperoxides the protective effect is not likely to be exerted by its enzymatic activity. Instead, may protect sperm from premature acrosome reaction in the epididymis by binding to lipid peroxides, which might otherwise interact with phospholipase A2 and induce the acrosome reaction.

Purity: Greater than 90% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Storage: The shelf life is related to many factors, storage state, buffer ingredients, storage temperature and the stability of the protein itself. Generally, the shelf life of liquid form is 6 months at -20℃/-80℃. The shelf life of lyophilized form is 12 months at -20℃/-80℃.
Notes: Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Store working aliquots at 4℃ for up to one week.
