|Human Cell lysate that Cynomolgus REG1B / PSPS2 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 cynomolgus REG1B (Met1-Asn166) was expressed with a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.|
|The recombinant cynomolgus REG1B comprises 155 amino acids and has a calculated molecular mass of 17.7 KDa. The apparent molecular mass of the protein is approximately 18 and 20 KDa respectively in SDS-PAGE.|
|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.
Regenerating gene (Reg), first isolated from a regenerating islet cDNA library, encodes a secretory protein with a growth stimulating effect on pancreatic beta cells, and could be associated with fibrocalculous pancreatopathy. Reg and Reg-related genes which were expressed in various organs have been revealed to constitute a multigene family, the Reg family consisting of four subtypes (types I, II, III, IV) and are involved in cancers and neurodegenerative diseases. Regenerating islet-derived 1 beta (REG1B), also known as Lithostathine-1-beta and Pancreatic stone protein 2 (PSPS2), is a types I Reg protein and contains one typical C-type lectin domain. REG1B is a 166-amino acid protein which has 22 amino acid substitutions in comparison with the previously isolated human REG1A, and it is was expressed only in pancreas. REG1B Is normally found in the exocrine pancreas, whereas in other tissues it appears either only under pathological conditions, such as Alzheimer's disease (brain), cancer (colon), or during regeneration such as neuronal sprouting in brain and pancreas regeneration. REG1B might act as an inhibitor of spontaneous calcium carbonate precipitation. The REG1A and REG1B gene and proteins could play different roles in the pancreas.
