Nectin Cell Adhesion Molecule 2, also known as NECTIN2, is a Ca(2+)-independent cell-cell adhesion molecule which is one of the plasma membrane components of adherens junctions. NECTIN2 takes a vital part in the establishment of homotypic as well as heterotypic cell to cell contacts. NECTIN2 is essential for resisting herpes simplex virus type 2 infection in transfected cells. NECTIN2 is also a possible target for antibody therapy of breast & ovarian cancers. NECTIN2 might be related with human longevity. Two diseases which have been associated with NECTIN2 are Herpes Simplex and Ovarian Cystic Teratoma.
NECTIN2 Human Recombinant produced in Sf9 Insect cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 337 amino acids (32-360a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 36.3kDa (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 40-57kDa).
NECTIN2 is expressed with an 8 amino acids His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sf9, Insect cells.
Greater than 90.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
NECTIN2 protein solution (0.25mg/ml) contains Phosphate Buffered Saline (pH 7.4) and 10% glycerol.
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.
