|Baculovirus-Insect Cell lysate that Human B3GNT6 (aa 44-384) 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 B3GNT6 (Gln44-Ser384) was fused with a polyhistide tag at the N-terminus.|
|The recombinant human B3GNT6 consists of 357 amino acids and has a calculated molecular mass of 40 kDa. The recombinant protein migrates as an approximately 47 kDa band 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.
B3GNT6 belongs to the glycosyltransferase 31 family. B3GNT6 play s an important role in the synthesis of mucin-type O-glycans in digestive organs. It catalyzes the transfer of GlcNAc from UDP-GlcNAc to GalNAcalpha1-Ser/Thr (Tn antigen) to form the core 3 structure (GlcNAcbeta1-3GalNAcalpha1-Ser/Thr). Core 3 structure exists in O-glycan which is an important precursor in the biosynthesis of mucin-type glycoproteins. Loss of core 3 could lead to the production of secreted mucins, then bacteria would be inefficiently cleared from the system, and chronic inflammation would be developed, which eventually would result in development of cancer. B3GNT6 gene is a tumor suppressor gene.
