Collagen triple helix repeat-containing protein 1 isoform 1, CTHRC1, Protein NMTC1.
Collagen triple helix repeat-containing protein 1 or CTHRC1 acts as a negative regulator of collagen matrix deposition. The protein is secreted from a 28kDa protein which is glycosylated and very conserved from lower chordates to mammals. CTHRC1 is found qualitatively in plasma of healthy human subjects. CTHRC1 plasma levels are also significantly elevated during pregnancy, in diabetes, in inflammatory and infectious conditions, in subjects with acute myeloid leukemia but not in subjects with solid cancers.CTHRC1 is highly connected with calcified tissues and cartilaginous matrix, but not with endothelial cells.
CTHRC1 produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 222 amino acids (31-243a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 24.1kDa (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 28-40kDa). CTHRC1 is expressed with a 6 amino acid His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sf9, Baculovirus cells.
CTHRC1 protein solution (0.5mg/ml) contains Phosphate Buffered Saline (pH 7.4) and 10% glycerol.
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
