SERPINB5 (Maspin) is a tumor suppressor protein of the serine proteinase inhibitor family. Maspin plays a vital role in embryonic development through critical functions in cell adhesion. In addition, Maspin is present in normal breast and prostatic epithelial cells although down regulated in the particular carcinomas. SERPINB5 impedes the growth, invasion, and metastatic properties of mammary tumors as well as the invasive ability of pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma cells. SERPINB5 being a breast tumor suppressor gene is a significant marker of the disease progression in breast neoplasms. Furthermore, high expression of maspin is linked to squamous cell carcinoma in non-small-cell lung cancer. Moreover, maspin expression has been directly linked with the biological aggressiveness of ovarian carcinoma. Maspin exhibits no serine protease inhibitory activity since it does not undergo the stressed to relaxed conformational transition typical of active serpins.
SERPINB5 Human Recombinant fused with a 20 amino acid His tag at N-terminus produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 395 amino acids (1-375 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 44.2 kDa.
The SERPINB5 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile Filtered colorless solution.
