|Acvr2a, RP23-139F8.3, ActrIIa, Acvr2, TactrII|
|A DNA sequence encoding the extracellular domain of mouse ACVR2A (NP_031422.3) (Met 1-Pro 134) was fused with the C-terminal polyhistidine-tagged Fc region of human IgG1 at the C-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.
|> 97 % as determined by SDS-PAGE|
|Measured by its ability to neutralize Activin-mediated inhibition on MPC11 cell proliferation.|
The ED50 for this effect is typically 20-60 ng/mL in the presence of 10 ng/mL recombinant Activin A.
|< 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 ACVR2A/Fc chimera is a disulfide-linked homodimer. The reduced monomer comprises 363 amino acids and has a calculated molecular mass of 41.4 kDa. As a result of glycosylation, the recombinant protein migrates as an approximately 55-65 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.|
ACVR2A and ACVR2B are two activin type II receptors. ACVR2A has been shown to interact with INHBA, SYNJ2BP and ACVR1B. The bovine ACVR2A gene encodes a protein of 513 amino acids which is highly homologous (approximately 98% identity) to the rat, mouse, and human ACVR2A proteins. Inactivation of ACVR2A is a common event in prostate cancer cells suggesting it may play an important role in the development of prostate cancer. The ACVR2A gene is a putative tumor suppressor gene that is frequently mutated in microsatellite-unstable colon cancers (MSI-H colon cancers). Frameshift mutation of ACVR2A may contribute to MSI-H colon tumorigenesis via disruption of alternate TGF-beta effector pathways.
