Protein argonaute-2, Argonaute2, hAgo2, Argonaute RISC catalytic component 2, Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2C 2, eIF-2C 2, eIF2C 2, PAZ Piwi domain protein, PPD, AGO2, EIF2C2, Protein slicer.
The Argonaute protein is part of the RISC or RNA-induced silencing complex, as so, the protein has a key part in the slicing processes of RNA. The RNA interference (RNAi) is being held by RISC. Small non-coding RNA fragments bond to the Argonaute proteins, through base pairing, eventually leads to the cleavage of messenger RNA or translation suppression.
AGO2 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain (a.a 1-859) containing 869 amino acids including a 10 a.a N-terminal His tag. The total molecular mass is 98.4kDa (calculated).
AGO2 is filtered (0.4 µm) and lyophilized from 0.5mg/ml solution in 50mM acetate buffer, pH 4.
It is recommended to add 0.1M acetate buffer, pH 4 to prepare a working stock solution of approximately 0.5mg/ml and let the lyophilized pellet dissolve completely. AGO2 is not sterile! Please filter the product by an appropriate sterile filter before using it in the cell culture.
Greater than 90.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
