|RP4-774I24.1, PAPP-A2, PAPPE, PLAC3|
|A DNA sequence encoding the human PAPPA2 mature form (NP_064714.2) corresponding to amino acid (Ser 234-Cys 1396) was expressed， with a carboxy-terminal polyhistidine tag.|
|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.
|> 90 % 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℃|
|The secreted recombinant human PAPPA2 consists of 1174 amino acids with the predicted molecular mass of 131 kDa. As a result of glycosylation, rhPAPPA2 migrates as an approximately 170-180 kDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.|
|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.
|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.|
Pappalysin-2/PAPP-A2 is the second member of the pappalysin family of metzincin superfamily, of which PAPP-A is the first member. There is no homology between the prepro-peptides of PAPP-A and PAPP-A2, but 46% of the residues of mature PAPP-A are also present in mature PAPP-A2. PAPP-A specifically cleaves insulin-like growth factor-binding protein(IGFBP)-4, one of six known modulators of IGF-I and –II, whereas PAPP-A2 specifically cleaved IGFBP-5 at one site, between Ser-143 and Lys-144. In contrast to the cleavage of IGFBP-4 by PAPP-A that strictly requires the presence of IGF, the cleavage of IGFBP-5 by PAPP-A2 was IGF-independent. Recent data firmly establish PAPP-A and IGFBP-4 as an important functional pair in several systems. Because of its close relationship with PAPP-A, both structurally and functionally, PAPP-A2 is a likely candidate for IGFBP-5 proteinase in many tissues and conditioned media where IGFBP-5 proteolysis has been reported.
