|Human Cell lysate that Rat CLEC4A3 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 rat CLEC4A3(Q5YIS0) (Leu68-Leu237) was expressed with Fc region of human IgG1 at the N-terminus.|
|The recombinant rat CLEC4A3 comprises 430 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 48.3 kDa. The apparent molecular mass of the recombinant protein is approximately 58 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions due to glycosylation.|
|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.
CLEC4A3 contains 1 C-type lectin domain and belongs to the C-type lectin-like domain-containing (CLEC) family. Lectins are proteins that are able to recognize and bind with specific carbohydrate molecules. C-type lectins are an important group of proteins found in the immune system of animals. These lectins are named C-type because of their calcium dependent carbohydrate recognition domain (CRD). In the immune system, C-type lectins act as recognition molecules by binding to foreign microorganisms. They also promote the movement and selective adhesion of white blood cells.
The C-type lectin has a three-dimensional fold, the CRD, in which calcium ions contribute to the lectin's ability to recognize and bind carbohydrates. In the immune system, carbohydrate recognition contributes to the ability of immune cells to move from one area of the body to another. It also allows immune cells to identify and discriminate between proteins that belong to the host and those that belong to foreign organisms. There are a number of different C-type lectin subfamilies, including collectins, selectins, proteoglycans, and lymphocyte lectins.
