PCSK9 Protein, Mouse, Recombinant (His Tag): Product Information
> 95 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method
Measured by its binding ability in a functional ELISA
. Immobilized mouse PCSK9 at 10 μg/ml (100 μl/well) can bind biotinylated recombinant human LDLR
. The EC50 of biotinylated human LDLR is 0.12 μg/ml.
A DNA sequence encoding the full length of mouse PCSK9 (NP_705793.1) precursor (Met 1-Gln 694) was expressed, with a C-terminal polyhistidine tag.
The secreted recombinant mouse PCSK9 consists of 671 amino acids and has a calculated molecular mass of 72.6 kDa. As a result of proteolysis and glycosylation, the recombinant protein migrates as doublet with apparent molecular mass of approximately 19 & 65 kDa, cprresponding to the prodomain and the mature form of PCSK9 respectively in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Lyophilized from sterile 15mM Tris, 90mM NaCl, 50% Glycerol, pH 7.5 1. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose, mannitol and 0.01% Tween80 are added as protectants before lyophilization. Specific concentrations are included in the hardcopy of COA. 2. Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
Please refer to the specific buffer information in the hard copy of CoA.
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.
Stability & Storage
Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃ Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.
Proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9), also known as NARC1 (neural apoptosis regulated convertase), which is a newly identified human secretory subtilase belonging to the proteinase K subfamily of the secretory subtilase family. PCSK9 protein is an enzyme which in humans is encoded by the PCSK9 gene with orthologs found across many species. It is expressed in neuroepithelioma, colon carcinoma, hepatic and pancreatic cell lines, and in Schwann cells. PCSK9 protein is highly expressed in the liver and regulates low density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) protein levels. Inhibition of PCSK9 protein function is currently being explored as a means of lowering cholesterol levels. Thereby, PCSK9 protein is regarded as a new strategy to treat hypercholesterolemia. PCSK9 protein contributes to cholesterol homeostasis and may have a role in the differentiation of cortical neurons.
