|Baculovirus-Insect Cell lysate that Human NMNAT2 / NMNAT-2 transfected / overexpressed for Western blot (WB) positive control. The whole cell lysate is provided in 1X Sample Buffer (1X modified RIPA buffer+1X SDS loading buffer).|
|A DNA sequence encoding the human NMNAT2 (Q9BZQ4-1)(Met1-Gly307) was fused with a polyhistide tag at the C-terminus.|
|The recombinant human NMNAT2 consists of 317 amino acids and has a calculated molecular mass of 35.8 kDa. The recombinant protein migrates as an approximately 35 kDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.|
|Cell lysate was prepared by homogenization in ice-cold modified RIPA Lysis Buffer with cocktail of protease inhibitors (Sigma). Cell debris was removed by centrifugation. Protein concentration was determined by Bradford assay (Bio-Rad protein assay, Microplate Standard assay). The cell lysate was boiled for 5 min in 1 x SDS loading buffer (50 mM Tris-HCl pH 6.8, 12.5% glycerol, 1% sodium dodecylsulfate, 0.01% bromophenol blue) containing 5% b-mercaptoethanol, and lyophilized.|
|Modified RIPA Lysis Buffer: 50 mM Tris-HCl pH 7.4, 150 mM NaCl, 1mM EDTA, 1% Triton X-100, 0.1% SDS, 1% Sodium deoxycholate, 1mM PMSF.|
|12.5% SDS-PAGE Stained with Coomassie Blue after protein purification.|
|Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt.|
|1. Centrifuge the tube for a few seconds and ensure the pellet at the bottom of the tube. 2. Re-dissolve the pellet using 200μL pure water and boil for 2-5 min. 3. Store the lyophilized cell lysate at 4℃. After re-dissolution, recommend to aliquot it into smaller quantities and store at -80℃.|
|1 X Sample Buffer (1 X modified RIPA buffer+1 X SDS loading buffer).|
|Store at 4℃. After re-dissolution, aliquot and store at -80℃.|
|Western blot (WB): Use at an assay dependent dilution.|
Other Applications: Not tested.
Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
NMNAT2, also known as NMNAT-2, belongs to the nicotinamide mononucleotide adenylyltransferase (NMNAT) enzyme family. NMNAT is a central enzyme in NAD+ biosynthesis, transferring the adenylyl moiety of ATP to nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) or nicotinic acid mononucleotide (NaMN) resulting in the formation of NAD+ or NaAD+ and the release of pyrophosphate. NMNAT2 is predominantly expressed in human pancreas, insulinoma as well as in the brain, especially in the cerebrum, cerebellum, occipital lobe, frontal lobe, temporal lobe and putamen. Immunofluorescence microscopy localized endogenous NMNAT2 to the Golgi apparatus in human cell line. Endogenous NMNAT2 seem to be a labile axon survival factor, because specific depletion of NMNAT2 is sufficient to induce Wallerian-like degeneration of uninjured axons which endogenous NMNAT1 and NMNAT3 cannot prevent. Thus endogenous NMNAT2 represents an exciting new therapeutic target for axonal disorders.
