Introduction

Glycophorin C, also known as GYPC,  is an integral membrane glycoprotein. GYPC is a minor species which is carried by human erythrocytes, however plays an important role in regulating the mechanical stability of red cells. Numeral glycophorin C mutations have been described. The Gerbich and Yus phenotypes are due to deletion of exon 3 & 2, respectively. The Webb & Duch antigens, also identified as glycophorin D, result from single point mutations of the glycophorin C gene. The glycophorin C protein has very slight homology with glycophorins A & B.

Description

GYPC Human Recombinant produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 66 amino acids (1-57a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 7.2kDa (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 18-28kDa). GYPC is expressed with a 6 amino acids His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source

Sf9, Baculovirus cells.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered colorless solution.

Formulation

GYPC protein solution (1mg/ml) contains Phosphate Buffered Saline (pH 7.4) and 10% glycerol.

Stability

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.
