CD48 antigen, B-lymphocyte activation marker BLAST-1, BCM1 surface antigen, Leukocyte antigen MEM-102, SLAM family member 2, SLAMF2, Signaling lymphocytic activation molecule 2, TCT.1.
CD48, is a GPI-linked protein which belongs to the CD2 family of immunoglobulin superfamily molecules. CD48 is capable to transduce signals and can likewise trigger signaling through CD2 or 2B4. CD48 to CD2 interactions advocate T cell activation and class replacing to IgG2a in B cells. In addition, high affinity of CD48 to 2B4, interactions may either promote or inhibit NK cell as well as cytotoxic T cell (CTL) activation. CD48 does not contain a transmembrane domain, though it is held at the cell surface by a GPI anchor through a C-terminal domain which possibly split to produce a soluble form of the receptor.
CD48 Human Recombinant produced in Sf9 Insect cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 203 amino acids (27-220a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 23.4kDa (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 28-40kDa).
CD48 is expressed with a 6 amino acid His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sf9, Insect cells.
Greater than 90.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
NECTIN2 protein solution (1.0mg/ml) contains Phosphate Buffered Saline (pH 7.4) and 10% glycerol.
