||S. cerevisiae PDI (Pdi1p), encoded by the PDI1 gene, is essential for growth. The critical function of Pdi1p may be the isomerization of non-native disulfide bonds, and its chaperone activity is thought to depend on this isomerase activity. Moreover, S. cerevisiae contains four nonessential genes with homology to PDI1: MPD1, MPD2, EUG1, and EPS1. Genetic analyses of strains lacking PDI genes indicated that Mpd1p is the only homologue that can fully compensate for the absence of Pdi1p. Furthermore, mutant Eug1p, which contains two mutated CXXC active site motifs, is functionally equivalent to Pdi1p.

||The antibody will remain stable for one year from the date of shipment if stored at -20°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Aliquots will remain stable for three months if stored at 4°C.
||Briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container's cap because small volumes of antibody will occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage.
