Pregnancy Specific Beta-1-Glycoprotein 5, Pregnancy-Specific Beta-1 Glycoprotein, Fetal Liver Non-Specific Cross-Reactive Antigen 3, Pregnancy-Specific Beta-1-Glycoprotein 5, FL-NCA-3, PS-beta-G-5, PSBG-5, PSG.
PSG5 belongs to the PSG family, which are a highly connected group of secreted glycoproteins, vastly expressed in fetal placental syncytiotrophoblast cells. PSGs are can be found in serum from the first 2-3 weeks of pregnancy and at higher levels as the pregnancy progresses, up to e point where they are the highest fetal protein found in maternal blood at term. PSG5’s role is inducing secretion of TH2-type cytokines from monocytes and modulating the maternal immune system throughout the pregnancy, thus defending the semi-allotypic fetus from rejection.
PSG5 Human Recombinant produced in E.coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 324 amino acids (35-335) and having a molecular mass of 36.4kDa.
PSG5 is fused to a 23 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile filtered colorless solution.
The PSG5 solution contains 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH 8.0), 1M Urea 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.
Greater than 80% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
