PGA4Protein Product Information
Synonym:PGA4, FLJ58952, FLJ77962, PGA3, PGA5
Protein Construction:A DNA sequence encoding the human PGA4 (P00790) (Met 1-Ala 388) was fused with the Fc region of human IgG1 at the C-terminus.
Expressed Host:Human Cells
Form & 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.
PGA4Protein QC Testing
Purity:> 80 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Bio-Activity:Measured by its ability to cleave the fluorogenic peptide substrate, Mca-RPKPVE-Nval-WRK(Dnp)-NH2, AnaSpec, Catalog # 27114.
The specific activity is > 3000 pmoles/min/μg.
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:Ile 16
Molecule Mass:The secreted recombinant human PGA4/Fc is a disulfide-linked homodimeric protein. The reduced monomer consists of 614 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 67.3 kDa. The apparent molecular mass of rhPGA/Fc monomer is approximately 65-70 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Formulation: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.
PGA4Protein 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.

PGA4 (Pepsinogen 4, group I), or Pepsinogen A, is a member of the peptidase A1 family. Pepsin is expressed as a pro-form zymogen, pepsinogen, whose primary structure has an additional 44 amino acids. Pepsin is stored as pepsinogen so it will only be released when needed, and does not digest the body's own proteins in the stomach's lining. Five types of zymogens of pepsins, gastric digestive proteinases, are known: pepsinogens A, B, and F, progastricsin, and prochymosin. There are two major groups of pepsinogen, namely pepsinogen A (PGA) and pepsinogen C (PGC) (or progastricsin), and each frequently has isozymogens. The PGA3, PGA4 and PGA5 genes encode identical human pepsinogen A enzymes.
