Mannose-binding protein C (MBL2), belongs to the collectin family of patternrecognition molecules and is an important component in the innate immune system. MBL2 is a secreted glycoprotein which recognizes mannose and N-acetylglucosamine on various microorganisms, and is capable of activating the classical complement pathway. Lacking MBL2 has been associated with susceptibility to autoimmune and infectious diseases.
MBL2 produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 237 amino acids (21-248a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 25.1kDa. (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 28-40kDa). MBL2 is expressed with a 9 amino acid His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
MBL2 protein solution (1mg/ml) contains Phosphate Buffered Saline (pH 7.4) and 10% glycerol.
Greater than 90.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
