|UNQ735, PRO1429, CT34, SGY, SGY-1, SGY1|
|A DNA sequence encoding the secreted form of human DKKL1 (Q9UK85) (Ala 31-Leu 242) was expressed with the fused Fc region of human IgG1 at the N-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.
|> 70 % as determined by SDS-PAGE|
|Measured by its ability to inhibit proliferation of HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cells. The ED50 for this effect is typically 5-15 μg/ml.|
|< 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 recombinant human DKKL1/Fc chimera is a disulfide-linked homodimeric protein. The reduced monomer consists of 472 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 52.4 kDa. rhDKKL1/Fc monomer migrates as an approximately 60 kDa protein 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.|
Dickkopf-like 1 (DKKL1) or soggy 1, is a glycoprotein unique to mammals that is expressed primarily in developing spermatocytes and localized in the acrosome of mature sperm. It is also expressed in the trophectoderm / placental lineage. This glycoprotein is secreted by postmeiotic male germ cells. DKKL1 is a member of the Dickkopf (DKK) family, a group of proteins that are characterized as secreted antagonists of Wnt signal transduction proteins. In mammals, embryos lacking DKKL1 protein developed into viable, fertile adults. DKKL1, either directly or indirectly, facilitates the ability of sperm to penetrate the zona pellucid. DKKL1 is related to the sperm apoptotic procession. Molecular analyses identified the Fas death ligand (FasL) as a target for DkkL1 pro-apoptotic activity in adult mice. DKKL1 is considered as a negative regulator of adult testic homeostasis and identifies a novel, DKKL1 / FasL- dependent, regulation that specifically controls the number of postpubertal spermatocytes.
