|Human Cell lysate that Human C7 / Complement component 7 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 C7 (P10643) (Met1-Gln843) was expressed, fused with the Fc region of human IgG1 at the C-terminus.|
|The recombinant human C7 /Fc is a disulfide-linked homodimer. The reduced monomer comprises 1062 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 118 kDa. The apparent molecular mass of the protein is approximately 118 kDa 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.
Complement component 7 is a component of the complement system. It belongs to the complement C6/C7/C8/C9 family. It contains 1 EGF-like domain, 1 LDL-receptor class A domain, 1 MACPF domain, 2 Sushi (CCP/SCR) domains and 2 TSP type-1 domains. Complement component 7 serves as a membrane anchor. It participates in the formation of Membrane Attack Complex (MAC). People with C7 deficiency are prone to bacterial infection. It is a constituent of MAC that plays a key role in the innate and adaptive immune response by forming pores in the plasma membrane of target cells. Defects in C7 are a cause of complement component 7 deficiency (C7D). A rare defect of the complement classical pathway associated with susceptibility to severe recurrent infections, predominantly by Neisseria gonorrhoeae or Neisseria meningitidis.
