Cynomolgus ALK-7 Transfected / Overexpression Cell Lysate Product Information
Expressed Host:Human Cells
Product Description:Human Cell lysate that Cynomolgus ALK-7 / ALK7 / ACVR1C 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).
Sequence information:A DNA sequence encoding the cynomolgus ACVR1C (F7GDQ6) (Leu44-Glu113) was expressed, fused with the Fc region of human IgG1 at the C-terminus.
Predicted N Terminal:Gly 25
Molecule Mass:The recombinant cynomolgus ACVR1C is a disulfide-linked homodimer. The reduced monomer comprises 330 amino acids and has a calculated molecular mass of 36.6 KDa.The apparent molecular mass of cynomolgus CD38 is approximately 42-46 KDa respectively in SDS-PAGE.
Cynomolgus ALK-7 Transfected / Overexpression Cell Lysate Usage Guide
Preparation Method: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.
Lysis Buffer: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.
Quality Control Testing:12.5% SDS-PAGE Stained with Coomassie Blue after protein purification.
Stability:Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt.
Recommend Usage: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℃.
Storage Buffer:1 X Sample Buffer (1 X modified RIPA buffer+1 X SDS loading buffer).
Storage Instruction:Store at 4℃. After re-dissolution, aliquot and store at -80℃.
Application notes:Western blot (WB): Use at an assay dependent dilution.
Other Applications: Not tested.
Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
ALK-7 / ACVR1C Background

ALK-7, also known as ALK7 and ACVR1C, belongs to the ALK family. It is a type I receptor for the TGFB family of signaling molecules. TGF-β is the prototype of a protein superfamily which, in humans, contains at least 35 members, including activins, inhibins, bone morphogenetic proteins, growth/differentiation factors, and Müllerian inhibiting substance. ALK-7 is a serine-threonine kinase that can cause the activation of one of the SMAD signal transducers, SMAD2. ALK-7 has a ligand known as Nodal. Nodal stimulates the secretion of TIMP-1 and inhibits matrix metalloproteinases MMP-2 and MMP-9 activity. The overexpression of Nodal or constitutively active ALK-7 decreases cell migration and invasion, whereas knock-down of Nodal and ALK-7 has the opposite effects.
