Recombinant Human GFER /HPO Protein,HEK293 expressed,ActiveMax (rh GFER) Met 81 - Asp 205 (Accession # NP_005253) was produced in human 293 cells (HEK293) at ACROBiosystems.
rh GFER contains no "tag", and has a calculated MW of 15.2 kDa. The predicted N-terminus is Met 81. DTT-reduced Protein migrates as 16 kDa in SDS-PAGE .
Less than 1.0 EU per μg of the rh GFER by the LAL method.
>92% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Lyophilized from 0.22 μm filtered solution in 20 mM Tris, 100 mM NaCl, pH 8.0. Normally Mannitol or Trehalose are added as protectants before lyophilization.

Growth factor, augmenter of liver regeneration (GFER) is also known as FAD-linked sulfhydryl oxidase ALR, which belongs to the Erv1/ALR family of proteins. This family can be found in higher and lower eukaryotes. There are two isoform of GFER: Isoform 1 and isoform 2. Isoform 2 missing 1 – 80 aa. Isoform 1 is mainly located in mitochondrion intermembrane space, while Isoform 1 is secreted to cytoplasm. Isoform 1 of GFER regenerates the redox-active disulfide bonds in CHCHD4/MIA40, a chaperone essential for disulfide bond formation and protein folding in the mitochondrial intermembrane space. The reduced form of CHCHD4/MIA40 forms a transient intermolecular disulfide bridge with GFER/ERV1, resulting in regeneration of the essential disulfide bonds in CHCHD4/MIA40, while GFER/ERV1 becomes re-oxidized by donating electrons to cytochrome c or molecular oxygen. The isoform 2 of GFER may act as an autocrine hepatotrophic growth factor promoting liver regeneration.
