Ciliary Neurotrophic Factor Receptor, CNTF Receptor Subunit Alpha, CNTFR-Alpha, Ciliary Neurotrophic Factor Receptor Subunit Alpha.
Ciliary Neurotrophic Factor Receptor (CNTFR) is a member of the type I cytokine receptor family and binds to CNTF. The alpha subunit provides the receptor specificity. Sole nucleotide polymorphisms in CNTFR has been associated with variations in muscle strength, in addition to early onset of eating disorders.
CTNFR produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 329 amino acids (23-342a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 36.9kDa. (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 40-57kDa).
CTNFR is expressed with a 9 amino acid His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sf9, Baculovirus cells.
CTNFR protein solution (1mg/ml) contains 10% glycerol & Phosphate Buffered Saline (pH 7.4).
Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
