Human DKK1 / Dkk-1 Protein (His Tag)

DatasheetSpecific ReferencesReviewsRelated ProductsProtocols
Human DKK1 Protein Product Information
Synonym:SK, DKK-1
Protein Construction:A DNA sequence encoding the human DKK1 precursor (NP_036374.1) (Met 2-His 266) was expressed with a C-terminal polyhistidine tag.
Expressed Host:Human Cells
Shipping: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.
Human DKK1 Protein QC Testing
Purity:> 90 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Bio-Activity:Measured by its ability to inhibit Wnt3a-induced alkaline phosphatase production by C3H10T1/2 cells. The ED50 for this effect is approximately 0.1-0.4 μg/ml in the presence of 10 ng/mL of mouse Wnt3a.
Endotoxin:< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method
Stability:Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃
Predicted N Terminal:Thr 32 or Ser 35
Molecule Mass:The recombinant human DKK1 protein consists of 235 amino acids and has a calculated molecular mass of 25.8 kDa. In SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions, the apparent molecular mass of rh DKK1 is approximately 45 kDa due to glycosylation.
Formulation:Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4
1. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose and mannitol 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.
Human DKK1 Protein Usage Guide
Storage: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.
Reconstitution:A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.

DKK-1 Background

Dickkopf (DKK) family proteins, consisting of DKK-1, DKK-2, DKK-3 and DKK-4, function as secreted Wnt antagonists by inhibiting Wnt coreceptors LRP5/6. DKK-1, DKK-2, and DKK-4 also bind cell surface Kremen-1 or Kremen-2 and promote the internalization of LRP5/6. Dickkopf related protein 1 (DKK-1) was initially identified as an inducer of head formation in Xenopus embryos. DKK-1 protein modulates Wnt signaling pathway during embryonic development. Increased levels of DKK-1 are found in the majority of lung cancers, esophageal squamous cell carcinomas, and hormone-resistant breast cancers, while DKK-1 expression is decreased in malignant melanoma and colorectal cancers.
