Mycoplasma pneumonia is part of the atypical pneumonia subtype which is caused by the bacteria M. pneumoniae. Mycoplasma pneumonia affects individuals younger than 40. It makes up 15 - 50% of all pneumonia cases in adults and especially in school-aged children. People at great risk for mycoplasma pneumonia comprise of those living or working in busy areas such as schools and homeless shelters, although many people who contract mycoplasma pneumonia have no identifiable risk factor. P1, P30, and P116 of mycoplasma pneumonia membrane proteins have been recognized as adhesive factors, P1 is considered as a main adhesion protein of the organism colonization.
M.Pneumoniae P30 Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a non-glycosylated polypeptide chain having a molecular mass of 18-19kDa.
M.Pneumoniae P30 is fused to a 6 amino acid His-tag at C-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile Filtered clear solution.
MP-P30c solution contains 25mM K2CO3, 0.025% NaN3 and PBS.
The Recombinant MP-P30c protein although stable at 4°C for 1 week, should be stored below -18°C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
Protein is >95% pure as determined by 10% PAGE (coomassie staining).
