DatasheetSpecific ReferencesReviewsRelated ProductsProtocols
Human AIM2 Protein Product Information
Synonym:AIM2, RP11-520H16.3, PYHIN4
Protein Construction:A DNA sequence encoding the human AIM2 (NP_004824.1) (Met 1-Thr 343) was fused with the GST tag at the N-terminus.
Expressed Host:Baculovirus-Insect Cells
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.
Human AIM2 Protein QC Testing
Purity:> 95 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Bio-Activity:Measured by its ability to inhibit the proliferation of MCF7 human breast adenocarcinoma cells(Karey, K.P. et al. (1988) Cancer Research 48:4083.). The ED50 for this effect is typically 4-7 μg/ml.
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:Met
Molecule Mass:The recombinant human AIM2/GST chimera consists of 567 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 65.2 kDa as estimated in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Formulation:Lyophilized from sterile 50mM Tris, 1M NaCl, 0.5mM PMSF, 5mM GSH, 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.
Human AIM2 Protein 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.

AIM2 Background

AIM2, Absent In Melanoma 2 is a member of the interferon-inducible HIN-200 protein family that contains an amino-terminal pyrin domain and a carboxy-terminal oligonucleotide/oligosaccharide-binding domain, senses cytoplasmic DNA by means of its oligonucleotide/oligosaccharide-binding domain and interacts with ASC (apoptosis-associated speck-like protein containing a CARD) through its pyrin domain to activate caspase-1. In response to foreign cytoplasmic DNA, AIM2 forms an inflammasome, resulting in caspase activation in inflammatory cells. It had been pointed to a role of AIM2 function in both inflammation and cancer. AIM-2 antigen is expressed in a wide variety of tumor types, including neuroectodermal tumors, as well as breast, ovarian and colon carcinomas. AIM-2 could be used as a tumor antigen target for monitoring vaccine trials or to develop antigen specific active immunotherapy for glioma patients.
