G Antigen 2A, G Antigen 2A/2B, Cancer/Testis Antigen Family 4, Cancer/Testis Antigen Family 4, Member 2, GAGE-2A, Member 2, CT4.2, GAGE-2.
GAGE2A is a member of a multigene family expressed in a large variety of tumors while in normal tissues; expression is limited to germ cells. These genes organized in clustered repeats, have a high degree of predicted sequence identity, however differ by scattered single nucleotide change. Their sequences have either the antigenic peptide YRPRPRRY or YYWPRPRRY which is recognized by cytotoxic T-cells.
GAGE2A Human Recombinant produced in E.coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 139 amino acids (1-116) and having a molecular mass of 15.2kDa.
GAGE2A is fused to a 23 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile Filtered clear solution.
The GAGE2A solution (0.5mg/ml) contains Phosphate-Buffered Saline (pH 7.4) 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.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 90.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
