|Human Cell lysate that Mouse AMICA1 / JAML 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 AMICA1 (NP_001005421.3) (Met1-Leu281) was expressed with a C-terminal polyhistidine tag.|
|The recombinant mouse AMICA1 comprises 270 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 30.9 kDa. The apparent molecular mass of the protein is approximately 47.7 kDa 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.
Junctional adhesion molecules (JAMs) are endothelial and epithelial adhesion molecules involved in the recruitment of circulating leukocytes to inflammatory sites. JAML (Junctional adhesion molecule-like), also known as AMICA1 (Adhesion molecule interacting with CXADR antigen 1), a protein related to the JAM family, is restricted to leukocytes and promotes their adhesion to endothelial cells. It contains 2 extracellular immunoglobulin-like domains, a transmembrane segment, and a cytoplasmic tail involved in activation signaling. Monocytic JAML/AMICA1 plays a critical role in regulating monocyte transendothelial migration (TEM) probably via binding to the endothelial coxsackie and adenovirus receptor (CAR) and other tight junction-associated adhesive molecules. The Expression of JAML/AMICA1 is restricted to the hematopoietic tissues with the exception of liver. JAML may function in transmigration of leukocytes through epithelial and endothelial tissues. Expressed at the plasma membrane of polymorphonuclear leukocytes, JAML/AMICA1 also enhances myeloid leukemia cell adhesion to endothelial cells.
