Frizzled-Related Protein (FRZB) is a secreted protein which is involved in the regulation of bone development. FRZB gene defects cause the female-specific osteoarthritis (OA) susceptibility. sFRPS (Soluble frizzled-related proteins) serve as modulators of Wnt signaling by direct interaction with Wnts. sFRPS have a role in regulating cell growth and differentiation in specific cell types. SFRP3/FRZB is involved in limb skeletogenesis. FRZB regulates chondrocyte maturation and long bone development.
FRZB produced in Sf9 Insect cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 302 amino acids (33-325 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 34.2kDa (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 28-40kDa).
FRZB is expressed with a 9 amino acid His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sf9, Baculovirus cells.
The FRZB solution (0.25mg/ml) contains Phosphate Buffered Saline (pH 7.4) and 10% glycerol.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 90% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
