|RP11-102C16.2, A33, MGC129986, MGC129987|
|A DNA sequence encoding the extracellular domain of human GPA33 (Q99795-1) (Met 1-Val 235) was fused with a polyhistidine tag at the C-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.
|> 95 % 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 GPA33 consists of 225 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 25 kDa. The apparent molecular mass of the rhGPA33 is approximately 35-40 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions due to glycosylation.|
|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.|
Cell surface A33 antigen, also known as glycoprotein A33, is a single-pass type I membrane protein which is expressed in normal gastrointestinal epithelium and in 95% of colon cancers. GPA33 contains one Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domain and one Ig-like V-type (immunoglobulin-like) domain. The open reading frame encodes a 319-amino acid polypeptide having a putative secretory signal sequence and 3 potential glycosylation sites. The predicted mature protein has a 213-amino acid extracellular region, a single transmembrane domain, and a 62-amino acid intracellular tail. Intracellular traffic and recycling to the cell surface appear to play a major role in GPA33 function and to have an influence on its surface density superseding translational regulation. GPA33 has become a promising target of immunologic therapy strategies, but its biologic function and potential role in tumorigenesis are unknown. EpCAM protein and GPA33 mRNA expressions are specific and sensitive markers of Barrett's metaplasia (BM). GPA33 may also play a role in cell-cell recognition and signaling.
