Human RSPO2 HEK293 Overexpression Lysate: Product Information
This Human RSPO2 overexpression lysate was created in HEK293 Cells and intented for use as a Western blot (WB) positive control. Purification of RSPO2 protein (Cat: 13084-H02H) from the overexpression lysate was verified.
A DNA sequence encoding the human RSPO2 (Q6UXX9-1) N-teminal fragment (Met 1-Gly 205, 186 Leu/Pro) was fused with the Fc region of human IgG1 at the C-terminus.
The secreted recombinant human RSPO2/Fc is a disulfide-linked homodimer. The reduced monomer comprises 425 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 48.3 kDa. ?The apparent molecular mass of rh RSPO2/Fc monomer is approximately 50 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Human RSPO2 HEK293 Overexpression Lysate: Usage Guide
Cell lysate was prepared by homogenization of the over-expressed cells in ice-cold modified RIPA Lysis Buffer with cocktail of protease inhibitors (Sigma). Cell debris was removed by centrifugation. Protein concentration was determined by Bradford assay (Bio-Rad protein assay, Microplate Standard assay). The cell lysate was boiled for 5 min in 1 x SDS loading buffer (50 mM Tris-HCl pH 6.8, 12.5% glycerol, 1% sodium dodecylsulfate, 0.01% bromophenol blue) containing 5% b-mercaptoethanol, and lyophilized.
1. Centrifuge the tube for a few seconds and ensure the pellet at the bottom of the tube.
2. Re-dissolve the pellet using 200μL pure water and boil for 2-5 min.
1 X Sample Buffer (1 X modified RIPA buffer+1 X SDS loading buffer).
Stability & Storage
Store at 4℃ for up to twelve months from date of receipt. After re-dissolution, aliquot and store at -80℃ for up to twelve months. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Western Blot (WB) Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

RSPO2 Background Information
R-spondin-2, also known as RSPO2, synergizes with Wnt to activate beta-catenin. RSPO2 is secreted proteins that regulate beta-catenin signaling. Activator of the beta-catenin signaling cascade leads to TCF-dependent gene activation. Action both in the canonical Wnt / beta- catenin-dependent pathway, possibly via a direct interaction with Wnt proteins, and in a Wnt-independent beta catenin pathway through a receptor signaling pathway that may not use frizzled / LRP receptors. Probably also acts as a ligand for frizzled and LRP receptors. The encoding gene Rspo2 was identified as a novel common integration site for the mouse mammary tumor virus in viral induced mouse mammary tumors. Rspo2 and Rspo2 / Wnt1 tumors contained many spindle cells, consistent with an epithelial-mesenchymal transformation phenotype. When Rspo2 and Rspo2 / Wnt1 tumor cells were transferred into naive mice, they exhibited greater metastatic activity than cells derived from Wnt1 tumors.
