CXCL13Protein Product Information
Protein Construction:A DNA sequence encoding the mature form of Cynomolgus (Macaca fascicularis) CXCL13 (Val 23-Pro 109) was expressed, with an N-terminal polyhistidine tag.
Expressed Host:E. coli
Form & Shipping: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.
CXCL13Protein QC Testing
Purity:> 90 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Endotoxin:Please contact us for more information.
Stability:Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃
Predicted N Terminal:His
Molecule Mass:The recombinant cynomolgus CXCL13 consists of 103 amino acids and has a calculated molecular mass of 12.4 kDa. The apparent molecular mass of the recombinant protein is approximately 14 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions due to glycosylation.
Formulation:Lyophilized from sterile 10mM Tris, 250mM NaCl, pH 8.0
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.
CXCL13Protein Usage Guide
Storage: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.
Reconstitution:A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.

The chemokine CXCL13, also known as BCA-1 (B-cell-attracting chemokine-1) or BLC (B-lymphocyte chemoattractant), which belongs to the CXC chemokine family. CXCL13 and its receptor CXCR5 control the organization of B cells within follicles of lymphoid tissues. CXCL13 is known to dictate homing and motility of B cells in lymphoid tissue and has been implicated in the formation of ectopic lymphoid tissue in chronic inflammation. It involves in B-cell compartmental homing within secondary lymphoid organs and recently implicated in the pathogenesis of inflammatory and malignant lymphocyte-mediated diseases. In Primary central nervous system lymphoma (PCNSL), expression of BCA-1 by malignant lymphocytes and vascular endothelium may influence tumor development and localization to central nervous system (CNS). In T-lymphocytes, CXCL13 expression is thought to reflect a germinal center origin of the T-cell. CXCL13 expression may also provide an additional useful tool for the diagnosis of Angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma (AITL).
