NFATC2, also known as nuclear factor of activated T-cells 2, belongs to the nuclear factor of activated T cells family. NFATC2 takes a significant part in the course of T helper cell differentiation, activation, and effector function. Even though KO of an individual NFAT isoform in T cells directs to rather minor effects, T cells lacking for NFATC1 and 2 totally fail to produce T helper cell effector cytokines, for instance the interleukins IL-4 and IL-2 or interferon gamma. Moreover, NFATC2 is highly phosphorylated and kept in the cytoplasm. Next T cell receptor stimulation, dephosphorylation via calcium-activated calcineurin induces a conformational modification of NFATC2 which reveals a few nuclear localization sequences.
NFATC2 produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 290 amino acids (396-678a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 33.1kDa. (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 28-40kDa). NFATC2 is expressed with a 7 amino acid His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
NFATC2 protein solution (0.25mg/ml) contains Phosphate Buffered Saline (pH 7.4) 40% glycerol and 1mM DTT.
Greater than 90.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
