SCARB2Protein Product Information
Synonym:Scarb2, 9330185J12Rik, Cd36l2, LGP85, LIMP-2, MLGP85
Protein Construction:A DNA sequence encoding the extracellular domain of mouse SCARB2 (NP_031670.1) (Met 1-Thr 432) was fused a polyhistidine tag 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.
SCARB2Protein QC Testing
Purity:> 90 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
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:Arg 27
Molecule Mass:The recombinant mouse SCARB2 consists of 417 amino acids after removal of the signal peptide and has a predicted molecular mass of 47.8 kDa. In SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions, the apparent molecular mass of rmSCARB2 is approximately 60-90 kDa due to glycosylation.
Formulation:Lyophilized from sterile 50mM Tris-Citrate, 0.3M NaCl, pH 6.5
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.
SCARB2Protein 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.

Lysosomal Integral Membrane Protein II (LIMPII), also known as SCARB2, LPG85, and CD36L2, is a type I II multi-pass membrane glycoprotein that is located primarily in limiting membranes of lysosomes and endosomes on all tissues and cell types so far examined. This protein may participate in membrane transportation and the reorganization of endosomal/lysosomal compartment. LIMPII is identified as a receptor for EV71 (human enterovirus species A, Enterovirus 71) and CVA16 (coxsackievirus A16) which are most frequently associated with hand, foot and mouth disease (HFMD). Expression of human LIMPII enables normally unsusceptible cell lines to support the viruses’ propagation and develop cytopathic effects. In addition, LIMPII also has been shown to bind thrombospondin-1, may contribute to the pro-adhesive changes of activated platelets during coagulation, and inflammation. Deficiency of the protein in mice impairs cell membrane transport processes and causes pelvic junction obstruction, deafness, and peripheral neuropathy.
