|A DNA sequence encoding the extracellular domain of mouse MARCO (NP_034896.1) (Gln 70-Ser 518) was expressed, fused with a polyhistidine tag at the N-terminus.|
|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.
|> 92 % as determined by SDS-PAGE|
|< 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 secreted recombinant mouse MARCO consists of 465 amino acids and has a calculated molecular mass of 47.3 kDa. As a result of glycosylation, the recombinant protein migrates as an approximately 55-60 kDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.|
|Lyophilized from sterile PBS, 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.|
Macrophage receptor MARCO, also known as Macrophage receptor with collagenous structure and Marco, is a single-pass type I I membrane protein. MARCO is a member of the class A scavenger receptor family and is part of the innate antimicrobial immune system. It is expressed in subpopulations of macrophages in the spleen and the medullary cord of lymph nodes. Although it is expressed on subsets of macrophages, it can be upregulated on other macrophages after bacterial infection. The strategic position of MARCO-expressing cells in lymphoid organs suggests an important role for this bacteria-binding molecule in removal of pathogens. MARCO has a short N-terminal cytoplasmic domain, a transmembrane domain, and a large extracellular part composed of a 75-residue long spacer domain, a 270-residue collagenous domain, and a 99-residue long scavenger receptor cysteine-rich (SRCR) domain. It is possible that cooperation between the SRCR domain and the collagenous domain is needed for high-affinity bacterial binding, or that the SRCR domain has to be in a trimeric form to effectively bind to bacteria
