||CD6 was fused with a C-terminal 6 His tag and has a calculated MW of 68.2 KDa expressed. Protein migrates as 110 kDa in reduced SDS-PAGE resulting from glycosylation.
||CD6 (Cluster of Differentiation 6) is a cell surface glycoprotein that is involved in T cell activation and a member of the scavenger receptor cysteine rich protein superfamily (SRCRSF). CD6 is expressed at low levels on immature thymocytes and at high levels on mature thymocytes. CD6 appears to play a role as both a costimulatory molecule in T cell activation and as an adhesion receptor. Studies demonstrating a mitogenic effect for T cells with some CD6 specific monoclonal antibodies, in conjunction with either accessory cells or PMA and antiCD2 mAb, support the concept of CD6 as a co stimulatory molecule.
||Recombinant human CD6 /TP120 His18 -Glu398 (Accession Q8WWJ7) fused with a C-terminal His tag was produced in human HEK293 cells
||Bulk protein in a 0.22 μm filtered solution of PBS, pH7.4 and delivered as liquid formulation or lyophilized powder. Normally 5-8% trehalose and mannitol are added as protectants before lyophilization.
||>95% as determined by SDS-PAGE. All lots are greater than 95% pure.
||Less than 1.0 EU per 1 μg of the rhCD6 by the LAL method.
