Major surface protein 5, msp5.
The granulocytic anaplasmosis disease is initiated by the Gram-negative bacterium Anaplasma phagocytophilum. Anaplasma Msp5 is preserved among the Anaplasma classes and expressed in the salivary glands of infected ticks.
Recombinant Anaplasma Msp5 produced in SF9 is a glycosylated, polypeptide chain having a calculated molecular mass of 20kDa.
Anaplasma Msp5 is expressed with a -6x His tag at N-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sf9 insect cells.
Anaplasma Msp5 is supplied at a 20mM HEPES buffer pH-8.0, 200mM NaCl and 20% Glycerol.
Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks.
Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time.
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 80% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Binds IgG- and IgM-type human antibodies.
