|Human Cell lysate that Human SCN2B 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 SCN2B (O60939) (Met1-Ala159) was expressed, fused with the Fc region of human IgG1 at the C-terminus.|
|The recombinant human SCN2B /Fc is a disulfide-linked homodimer. The reduced monomer comprises 371 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 42.2 kDa. The apparent molecular mass of the protein is approximately 53-57 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.
SCN2B plays a key role in the assembly, expression, and functional modulation of the heterotrimeric complex of the sodium channel. Voltage-gated sodium channels (NaV) are composed of one pore-forming alpha-subunit, which may be associated with either one or more beta-subunits. Alpha-subunits are composed for four homologous domains, each of which contains six transmembrane segments.They are responsible for action potential initiation and propagation in excitable cells, including nerve, muscle, and neuroendocrine cell types. SCN2B causes an increase in the plasma membrane surface area and in its folding into microvilli. SCN2B also interacts with TNR and may play a crucial role in clustering and regulation of activity of sodium channels at nodes of ranvier.
