Zinc Alpha 2 Glycoprotein Protein, Human, Recombinant (His Tag) Product Information
> 95 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method
Testing in progress
A DNA sequence encoding the human AZGP1 (P25311) (Met1-Ser298) with a C-terminal polyhistidine tag was expressed.
Predicted N Terminal
The recombinant human AZGP1 comprises 289 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 33.6 kDa. The apparent molecular mass of the protein is approximately 41 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4
1. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose, mannitol and 0.01% Tween80 are added as protectants before lyophilization. Specific concentrations are included in the hardcopy of COA.

Zinc Alpha 2 Glycoprotein Background Information
Alpha-2-glycoprotein, also known as AZGP1, belongs to the MHC class I family. It can be detected in body fluids such as serum, sweat, and seminal and breast cyst fluids. It has been shown that alpha-2-glycoprotein can stimulate lipolysis by adipocytes in vivo and in vitro. Thus it is believed that alpha-2-glycoprotein plays an important role in the regulation of body weight, and age-dependent changes in genetically influenced obesity, and it also regulates melanin production by normal and malignant melanocytes. Alpha-2-glycoprotein is produced by both white and brown fat adipocytes and may act in a local autocrine fashion in the reduction of adiposity in cachexia.
