Killer Cell lectin-Like Receptor Subfamily K, Member 1 (KLRK1) is an activating receptor which has recently generated considerable interest. The most fascinating of these, are a couple of closely related proteins known as MICA and MICB. These are cell-surface molecules distantly related to MHC class I proteins, and their genes have elements of heat shock promoters. Thus, MICA and MICB are expressed in the course of cell stress and are up-regulated in tumor cells and during viral infections. This receptor-ligand combination has a crucial role in the immune response to various pathologies.
KLRK1 Human Recombinant produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 386 amino acids (73-216a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 43.9kDa (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 40-57kDa).
KLRK1 is expressed with a 242 amino acids hIgG-His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
KLRK1 protein solution (0.5mg/ml) contains Phosphate Buffered Saline (pH 7.4) and 10% glycerol.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
