Introduction

PTGES2 is a membrane-associated prostaglandin E synthase, which catalyzes the conversion of prostaglandin H2 to prostaglandin E2. Additionally, PTGES2 activates the transcription regulated by a gamma-INF-activated transcription element. PTGES2 is widely expressed- in the heart, including apex, inter-ventricular septum, both atria and ventricles, but not in the aorta. PTGES2 is also expressed in fetal heart. PTGES2 is detected in various regions of the brain: cerebellum; occipital, frontal and parietal lobes. It is also expressed in the lymph nodes, skeletal muscle, kidney and trachea, but not in the thymus or lung. PTGES2 is overexpressed in colorectal cancer.

Description

PTGES2 produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 206 amino acids (1-186 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 23.5kDa.
PTGES2 is fused to a 20 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source

Escherichia Coli.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered colorless solution.

Formulation

PTGES2 protein solution (0.5mg/ml) containing 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH 8.0), 20% glycerol, 2mM DTT and 0.2M NaCl.

Stability
