Lum, Ldc, SLRR2D, Lumican, Keratan sulfate proteoglycan lumican, KSPG lumican.
Lumican also known as LUM is a part of the small leucine-rich proteoglycan (SLRP) family which comprises decorin, biglycan, fibromodulin, keratocan, epiphycan, and osteoglycin. Furthermore, we can see that in these bifunctional molecules, the protein moiety binds collagen fibrils and the highly charged hydrophilic glycosaminoglycans regulate interfibrillar spacings. Lumican is the main keratan sulfate proteoglycan of the cornea however LUM is also distributed in interstitial collagenous matrices throughout the body. Lumican regulates collagen fibril organization and circumferential growth, corneal transparency, epithelial cell migration and tissue repair.
LUM Mouse Recombinant produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 328 amino acids (19-338 a.a) and having a molecular mass of 37.5kDa (Migrates at 40-57kDa on SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions).
LUM is fused to an 8 amino acid His-tag at C-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
LUM protein solution (0.5mg/ml) containing Phosphate Buffered Saline (pH 7.4) and 20% glycerol.
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
