|Baculovirus-Insect Cell lysate that Mouse CDC37 / CDC37A 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 mouse CDC37 (Q61081) (Met1-Ala379) was expressed with the N-terminal polyhistidine-tagged GST tag at the N-terminus.|
|The recombinant mouse CDC37/GST chimera consists of 616 amino acids and has a calculated molecular mass of 72.4 kDa. The recombinant protein migrates as an approximately 66 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.
CDC37 is a protein that is expressed in proliferative zones during embryonic development and in adult tissues, consistent with a positive role in proliferation and is required for cell division in budding yeast. CDC37 is though to play an important role in the establishment of signaling pathways controlling cell proliferation through targeting intrinsically unstable oncoprotein kinases such as Cdk-4, Raf-1, and src to the molecular chaperone Hsp90. Decreased Hsp90 expression can reduce the levels of microtubule-associated protein tau, whose overexpression may induce many diseases. CDC37 is considered as a co-chaperone that is classified to Hsp90's accessory proteins. It has been reported that suppression of Cdc37 destabilized tau, leading to its clearance, whereas cdc37 overexpression preserved tau.Cdc37 was found to co-localize with tau in neuronal cells and to physically interact with tau from human brain. Moreover, Cdc37 levels significantly increased with age.
