A DNA sequence encoding the human LY86 (O95711) (Met1-Ser162) was expressed, fused with the Fc region of human IgG1 at the C-terminus.
In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature. Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
HumanLY86/MD-1Protein QC Testing
> 85 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method
Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃
Predicted N Terminal:
The recombinant human LY86/Fc is a disulfide-linked homodimer. The reduced monomer comprises 383 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 42.7 kDa. The apparent molecular mass of the protein is approximately 48 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. 2. Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
HumanLY86/MD-1Protein Usage Guide
Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.
MD-1 and MD-2 are secretory glycoproteins that exist on the cell surface in complexes with transmembrane proteins. MD-1 is anchored by radioprotective 105 (RP105) which is a molecule containing leucine-rich repeats and is expressed on B cells, dentritic cells and macrophages, while MD-2 is associated with TLR4. MD-1 is required for efficient RP105 cell surface expression and function. It is indicated that the RP105/MD1 complex, in conjunction with TLR4, mediates the innate immune response to LPS in B cells, and also plays a role in protecting against apoptosis, B-cell proliferation, etc. Mouse MD-1 cDNA encodes a 162 amino acid precursor protein with a putative 19 aa signal peptide and two potential N-linked glycosylation sites. It shares 40% and 66% amino acid sequence identity with chicken and human MD-1 respectively. MD-1 is mainly expressed in spleen, and also detectable in liver, brain, thymus, and kidney.
