Store at -20 °C for one year. The lyophilized powder is stable at room temperature for at least one month and for greater than a year when kept at -20°C. Upon reconstituted, aliquot and store at -20°C or -80°C. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
LYRIC is a type II membrane protein, the precise role of which has yet to be defined. It is expressed in breast and prostate carcinoma and is a potential mediator of lung metastasis. It has also been found in mouse Purkinje neurons and cerebellum. In epithelial cells it is recruited to tight junctions (TJ) during the maturation of the TJ complexes. LYRIC co-localizes with beta-catenin in normal and tumour tissues.
