Human GRK6 / GPRK6 Insect Cell Lysate (WB positive control)

DatasheetSpecific ReferencesReviewsRelated ProductsProtocols
Human GRK6 Transfected / Overexpression Cell Lysate Product Information
Expressed Host:Baculovirus-Insect cells
Product Description:Baculovirus-Insect Cell lysate that Human GRK6 / GPRK6 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).
Sequence information:A DNA sequence encoding the human GRK6 isofrom B (P43250-2) (Met 1-Arg 589) was fused with the N-terminal polyhistidine-tagged GST tag at the N-terminus.
Predicted N Terminal:Met
Molecule Mass:The recombinant human GRK6/GST chimera consists of 826 amino acids and has a calculated molecular mass of 95.1 kDa. It migrates as an approximately 85 kDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Human GRK6 Transfected / Overexpression Cell Lysate Usage Guide
Preparation Method: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.
Lysis Buffer: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.
Quality Control Testing:12.5% SDS-PAGE Stained with Coomassie Blue after protein purification.
Stability:Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt.
Recommend Usage: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℃.
Storage Buffer:1 X Sample Buffer (1 X modified RIPA buffer+1 X SDS loading buffer).
Storage Instruction:Store at 4℃. After re-dissolution, aliquot and store at -80℃.
Application notes:Western blot (WB): Use at an assay dependent dilution.
Other Applications: Not tested.
Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
GRK6 Background

G protein-coupled receptor kinase 6, also known as G protein-coupled receptor kinase GRK6, GRK6 and GPRK6, is a lipid-anchor protein which belongs to the protein kinase superfamily, AGC Ser/Thr protein kinase family and GPRK subfamily. GRK6 / GPRK6 contains one AGC-kinase C-terminal domain, one protein kinase domain and one RGS domain. This protein phosphorylates the activated forms of G protein-coupled receptors thus initiating their deactivation. Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described. GRK6 / GPRK6 is widely expressed. GRK6 / GPRK6 silencing causes suppression of signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) phosphorylation associated with reduction in MCL1 levels and phosphorylation, illustrating a potent mechanism for the cytotoxicity of GRK6 inhibition in multiple myeloma (MM) tumor cells. GRK6 also appears to be involved in responses to morphine. Inhibition of GRK6 represents a uniquely targeted novel therapeutic strategy in human multiple myeloma.
