|Serpind1, AA985900, AI30344 6, HCII, Hcf2, MGC107662|
|A DNA sequence encoding the mouse SerpinD1 precursor (NP_032249.3) (Met1-Ser 478) was expressed, with a C-terminal polyhistidine tag.|
|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.
|> 98 % as determined by SDS-PAGE|
|Measured by its ability to inhibit thombin (Sigma, T4648) cleavage of fluorogenic peptide substrate Boc-VPR-AMC (R&D Systems, Catslog# ES011). The IC50 value is < 1.2 nM.|
|< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method|
|Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃|
|The recombinant mouse SerpinD1 consists of 466 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 53.5 kDa. By SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions, the apparent molecular mass of rmSerpinD1 is approximately 65-70 kDa as a result of glycosylation.|
|Lyophilized from sterile 25mM HEPES, 150mM NaCl, 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.
|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.|
|A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.|
SerpinD1, also known as heparin cofactor II (HCâ…¡), is a member of Serpin superfamily of the serine proteinase inhibitors. HCII is a glycoprotein in human plasma that inhibits thrombin and chymotrypsin, and the rate of inhibition of thrombin is rapidly increased by Dermatan sulfate (DS), heparin (H) and glycosaminoglycans(GAG). The stimulatory effect of glycosaminoglycans on the inhibition is mediated, in part, by the N-terminal acidic domain of HCII. Interestingly, a C-terminal His-tagged recombinant HCII exhibits enhanced activity of thrombin inhibition. It has been suggested that HCII plays an unique and important role in vascular homeostasis, and accordingly mutations in this gene or congenital HCII deficiency is potentially associated with thrombosis. HCII specifically inhibits thrombin action at the site of vascular wall injury and HCII-thrombin complexes have been detected in human plasma. HCII protects against thrombin-induced vascular remodeling in both humans and mice and suggest that HCII is a predictive biomarker and therapeutic target for atherosclerosis. SerpinD1 also inhibits chymotrypsin, but in a glycosaminoglycan-independent manner.
