Relevance: Saposin-A and saposin-C stimulate the hydrolysis of glucosylceramide by beta-glucosylceramidase (EC 126.96.36.199) and galactosylceramide by beta-galactosylceramidase (EC 188.8.131.52). Saposin-C apparently acts by combining with the enzyme and acidic lipid to form an activated complex, rather than by solubilizing the substrate.Saposin-B stimulates the hydrolysis of galacto-cerebroside sulfate by arylsulfatase A (EC 184.108.40.206), GM1 gangliosides by beta-galactosidase (EC 220.127.116.11) and globotriaosylceramide by alpha-galactosidase A (EC 18.104.22.168). Saposin-B forms a solubilizing complex with the substrates of the sphingolipid hydrolases.Saposin-D is a specific sphingomyelin phosphodiesterase activator (EC 22.214.171.124).Prosaposin: Behaves as a myelinotrophic and neurotrophic factor, these effects are mediated by its G-protein-coupled receptors, GPR37 and GPR37L1, undergoing ligand-mediated internalization followed by ERK phosphorylation signaling.
Reference: Molecular cloning of a human co-beta-glucosidase cDNA evidence that four sphingolipid hydrolase activator proteins are encoded by single genes in humans and rats.Rorman E.G., Grabowski G.A.Genomics 5:486-492(1989)
Purity: Greater than 90% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Storage Buffer: Tris-based buffer，50% glycerol
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.
