Recombinant Human Centromere Protein A, His-tagged

Cat. No.: CENPA -617H
Product Overview: Recombinant Human CENP-A produced inSF9is a glycosylated, polypeptide chain having a molecular mass of 17,015 Dalton. CENP-A is expressed with a -6x His tag and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques
Description: Centromere proteins are a group of proteins which form and/or mediate the function of centromeres, the central structures of chromosomes to which spindle fibers/microtubuli attach and pull the chromosomes apart in cell division. Currently, 9 centromere proteins are known and designated CENP-A to CENP-I. Most of the centromere proteins are targets of autoantibodies, the anti-centromere antibodies. CENP-A is another important centromeric autoantigen in addition to CENP-B: it has a molecular weight of approx. 20 kDa and is incorporated into centromeric chromatin due to its histone-like properties. CENP-A antibodies are an important marker for correct diagnosis of Scleroderma / CREST syndrome in CENP-B-autoantibody negative patients.
