Recombinant Mouse CD68 Protein (Met1-Ser291), His-tagged

Cat.No.: CD68-837M
Product Overview: Recombinant Mouse CD68 Protein (NP_001277987.1) (Met1-Ser291) was produced by Baculovirus-Insect Cells expression system. This protein was expressed with a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.
Description: Macrosialin, also known as CD68 and Gp11, is a single-pass type I membrane protein which belongs to theLAMP family. CD68 is highly expressed by blood monocytes and tissue macrophages. It is also expressed in lymphocytes, fibroblasts and endothelial cells. CD68 is expressed in many tumor cell lines which could allow them to attach to selectins on vascular endothelium, facilitating their dissemination to secondary sites. CD68 plays a role in phagocytic activities of tissue macrophages, both in intracellular lysosomal metabolism and extracellular cell-cell and cell-pathogen interactions. It is a commonly used marker for macrophages. However, a number of studies have shown that CD68 antibodies react with other hematopoietic and non-hematopoietic cell types, suggesting that CD68 may not be a macrophage-specific antigen. CD68 binds to tissue- and organ-specific lectins or selectins, allowing homing of macrophage subsets to particular sites. Rapid recirculation of CD68 from endosomes and lysosomes to the plasma membrane may allow macrophages to crawl over selectin-bearing substrates or other cells.

Form: Lyophilized from sterile 20 mM Tris, 150 mM NaCl, pH 8.0, 10 % glycerol. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose, mannitol and 0.01% Tween80 are added as protectants before lyophilization.
Molecular Mass: The recombinant mouse CD68 consists of 282 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 30.2 kDa.
Protein length: Met1-Ser291
Endotoxin: < 1.0 EU per μg protein as determined by the LAL method.
Purity: > 90 % as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Stability: Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70 centigrade.
Storage: Store it under sterile conditions at -20 centigrade to -80 centigrade. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Reconstitution: It is recommended that sterile water be added to the vial to prepare a stock solution of 0.2 mg/ml. Centrifuge the vial at 4ºC before opening to recover the entire contents.
Shipping: In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature.
Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
