Introduction

Receptor-associated Protein (aka RAP) averts the GCM-mediated enhancement of axon growth- ApoE-containing lipoproteins which are known to bind to receptors of the LDLr superfamily. In the presence of RAP, GCM doesn’t increase the axon extension rate in relation to base medium. Furthermore, the addition of RAP to the base medium doesn’t change the rate of axon extension. This implies that the growth stimulatory effect of apoE-containing lipoproteins secreted by glial cells is mediated by the LDLr family receptors. RAP annuls the growth stimulatory effect of GCM.

Description

Recombinant Rat Receptor Associated Protein produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 327 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 38,862 Dalton. The Recombinant RAP Rat contains 6xHis tag and 1xC-myc, RAP Rat is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source

Escherichia Coli.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.

Formulation

The protein (1mg/ml) was lyophilized after from a sterile solution containing TBS pH-7.5, 0.1% BSA and 0.09% NaN3.

Note

Ligand binding to RAP is Ca2+ dependent and e.g. lipid receptors can be released from RAP by a buffer containing 10mM EDTA. Furthermore, buffers containing phosphate should be avoided (it would form precipitates with Ca2+).

Solubility

It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized RAP Rat in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.

Stability

Lyophilized RAP Rat although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution RAP Rat should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use 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.

Purity

Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
