Human NGFR Protein Product Information
Synonym:CD271, Gp80-LNGFR, TNFRSF16, p75(NTR), p75NTR
Protein Construction:A DNA sequence encoding the human NGFR (P08138) extracellular domain (Met 1-Asn 250) was fused with the Fc region of human IgG1 at the C-terminus.
Expressed Host:Human 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 NGFR Protein QC Testing
Purity:> 95 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Bio-Activity:Measured by its ability to inhibit NGF dependent proliferation of TF-1 human erythroleukemic cells.
The ED50 for this effect is typically 0.5-3 μg/mL in the presence of 4 ng/mL Recombinant Human NGF.
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:Lys 29
Molecule Mass:The secreted recombinant human NGFR/Fc is a disulfide-linked homodimeric protein. The reduced monomer consists of 463 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 50.6 kDa. The apparent molecular mass of rhNGFR/Fc monomer is approximately 70-80 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions due to glycosylation.
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.

NGFR/P75 Background

Nerve growth factor receptors (NGFRs) belong to a large growth factor receptor family. NGFR includes two types of receptors: high-affinity nerve growth factor receptor and low-affinity nerve growth factor receptor. High-affinity nerve growth factor receptor is also referred as Trk familywhose members are bound by some neurotrophins with high affinity. Nerve growth factor binds with TrkA after being released from target cells, the NGF / TrkA complex is subsequently trafficked back to the cell body. The Low-affinity nerve growth factor receptor also named p75 which binds with all kinds of neurotrophins with low affinity. All the four kinds of neurotrophins, including Nerve growth factor, Brain derived neurotrophic factor, Neurotrophin-3, and Neurotrophin-4 bind to the p75. Studies have proved that NGFR acts as a molecular signal swith that determines cell death or survival by three steps. First, pro-nerve growth factor (prNGF) triggers cell apoptosis by its high affinity binding to p75NTR, while NGF induces neuronal survival with low-affinity binding. Second, p75NTR mediates cell death by combining with co-receptor sortilin, whereas it promotes neuronal survival through combination with proNGF. Third, release of the intracellular domain chopper or cleavage short p75 NTR can independently initiate neuronal apoptosis.
