Human cytomegalovirus (HCMV) Glycoprotein B / gB Protein

DatasheetSpecific ReferencesReviewsRelated ProductsProtocols
gBProtein Product Information
Protein Construction:A DNA sequence encoding the extracellular domain (Met 1-Lys 700) linked with the cytoplasmic domain (Arg 777-Val 907) of human CMV gB (AAA45920.1, with furin cleavage site mutated from 'RTKR' to 'TTQT') was expressed, fused with five additional amino acids (DDDDK) at the C-terminus.
Expressed Host:Human Cells
Form & 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.
gBProtein QC Testing
Purity:> 90 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
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:Ser 25
Molecule Mass:The recombinant glycoprotein B of human CMV consists of 813 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 92 kDa. In SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions, the apparent molecular mass of gB is approximately 130-140 kDa due to glycosylation.
Formulation:Lyophilized from sterile Tris 50mM, NaCl 100mM, pH 8.0
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.
gBProtein 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.

Human cytomegalovirus (CMV) (human herpesvirus 5) glycoprotein B, also referred as CMV gB or gB, which belongs to the herpesviridae glycoprotein B family. It is a 907-amino acid glycoprotein encoded by the ORF of UL55. Cytomegalovirus Glycoprotein B protein is the most abundant component of the envelope, a target of neutralizing antibodies with at least two defined neutralizing epitopes and an essential replication component. Cytomegalovirus Glycoprotein B protein plays important roles in HCMV entry, cell-cell spread of internal virions, and fusion of infected cells. In addition, Cytomegalovirus Glycoprotein B protein is one envelope protein capable of heparin binding. It forms a physical association with host cell annexin II independent of the presence of calcium.
