Appearance:White to off-white solid.
Solubility:Soluble in DMSO (10mg/ml) or 100% ethanol (10mg/ml).
Long Term Storage:+4°C
Use/Stability:Stable for at least 1 year after receipt when stored at +4°C. Stock solutions are stable for up to 6 months at -20°C.
Miscellaneous/General:G protein α subunits including a0, as, aq, ai1, ai2, ai3, az, low molecular weight G proteins such as ras and the protein-tyrosine kinase p56lck are all posttranslationally palmitoylated, a modification that regulates localization and function.
