|Background||PMVK(phosphomevalonate kinase) is a cytosolic enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of mevalonate-5-phosphate to mevalonate-5-diphosphate. It is mapped to chromosome 1p13-1q22-23 and spans more than 8.4 kb in the human genome. PMVK is a peroxisomal protein which requires the C-terminal peroxisomal targeting signal, Ser-Arg-Leu, for localization to the organelle. It was expressed highly in heart, liver, skeletal muscle, kidney and pancreas and slightly lower in brain, placenta, and lung. And PMKase gene expression is subject to regulation by sterol at the level of transcription. It is a single copy gene covering less than 15 kb in the human genome. The human PMKase amino acid sequence contains a consensus peroxisomal targeting sequence(PTS-1), Ser-Arg-Leu, at the C terminus of the protein.|

Guaranteed product quality
We promise all of our products perform as described in datasheets.
1. Post-translational modification:phosphorylation, methylation, glycosylation etc. These modifications prevent SDS molecules from binding to the target protein and thus make the band size appear larger than expected
2. Post-translational cleavage: this can cause smaller bands and or multiple bands
3. Alternative splicing: the same gene can have alternative splicing patterns generating different size proteins, all with reactivities to the antibody.
4. Amino Acid R chain charge: SDS binds to positive charges. The different size and charge of the Amino Acid side chains can affect the amount of SDS binding and thus affect the observed band size.
5. Multimers: Multimers are usually broken up in reducing conditions. However if the interactions between the multimers are strong, the band may appear higher.,
