Introduction

Microfibrillar-associated protein 2 (MFAP2) is an O-glycosylated protein discharged to the extracellular space and the extracellular matrix. MFAP2 connects with biglycan and elastin in a ternary complex. MFAP2 plays a key role in the support and distensibility of the juxtacanalicular region of these collector channels. MFAP2 inhibits LTB-1 binding to fibrillin-1, promotes the phosphorylation of Smad2 thus mediating the consequent extracellular deposition of latent TGFbeta.

Description

MFAP2 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 190 amino acids (18-183 a.a) and having a molecular mass of 21.5kDa.
MFAP2 is fused to a 24 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source

Escherichia Coli.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered clear solution.

Formulation

MFAP2 protein solution (0.5mg/ml) containing 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH 8.0), 1M Urea and 20% 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.

Purity

Greater than 90.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
