Rat Her2 / ERBB2 HEK293 Overexpression Lysate: Product Information
This Rat Her2 / ERBB2 overexpression lysate was created in HEK293 Cells and intented for use as a Western blot (WB) positive control. Purification of Her2 / ERBB2 protein (Cat: 80079-R02H) from the overexpression lysate was verified.
A DNA sequence encoding the rat ErbB2 (AAH61863.1) extracellular domain (Met 4-Thr 656) was fused with the Fc region of human IgG1 at the C-terminus.
The recombinant rat ErbB2/Fc is a disulfide-linked homodimer. The reduced monomer comprises 872 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 97 kDa. The apparent molecular mass of the rat ErbB2/Fc monomer is approximately 130 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions due to glycosylation.
Rat Her2 / ERBB2 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.
Her2 / ERBB2 Background Information
Epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2), also known as ErbB2, NEU, and CD34, is a type I membrane glycoprotein, and belongs to the epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor family. HER2 protein cannot bind growth factors due to the lacking of ligand binding domain of its own and autoinhibited constitutively. However, HER2 forms a heterodimer with other ligand-bound EGF receptor family members, therefore stabilizes ligand binding and enhances kinase-mediated activation of downstream molecules. HER2 plays a key role in development, cell proliferation and differentiation. HER2 gene has been reported to associate with malignancy and a poor prognosis in numerous carcinomas, including breast, prostate, ovarian, lung cancers and so on.
