Introduction

Recombinant Human Lipocalin-2 also called Neutrophil Gelatinase Associated Lipocalin (NGAL) belongs to a family of lipocans which include 25 proteins (including a1-microglobulin and b-lactoglobulin), which are characterized by their ability to bind small lipophilic substances in their hydrophobic core.
They thereby serve as transporters of substances like retinal, biliverdins & prostaglandins. There are indications that NGAL is involved in modulation of the inflammatory response and is found in the plasma of patients after stroke.

Description

Neutrophil Gelatinase Associated Lipocalin Human Recombinant is expressed in Pichia pastoris having a molecular weight of approximately 21kDa.
The LCN2 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source

Pichia pastoris.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.

Formulation

LCN2 was lyophilized from 0.02M NH4HCO3.

Solubility

It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized LCN2 in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.

Stability

Lyophilized LCN2 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution LCN2 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

Purity

Greater than 96% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
