Immunoglobulin G-binding protein A, IgG-binding protein A, Staphylococcal protein A, SPA.
Protein A is a cell wall component produced by several strains of Staphylococcus aureus. The recombinant Protein A is genetically engineered protein and holds 5 IgG-binding regions of protein A. Recombinant Protein A functions basically the same as native Protein A and is perfect for purification of polyclonal or monoclonal IgG antibodies. Protein A binds to human IgG1, IgG2 and IgG4, mouse IgG2a, IgG2b and IgG3 and rat IgG2c. Protein A also binds to total IgG from rabbit, pig, dog, cat, and guinea pig.
SPA-Cys His Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single non-glycosylated polypeptide chain with 6×His-tag and a Cys on C-terminus. SPA-Cys His is comprised of 5 IgG-binding domains E-D-A-B-C aligned in series containing 307 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 34.8kDa containing little or no carbohydrate. Cell wall binding region, cell membrane binding region and albumin binding region were removed to ensure the highest specific IgG binding.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
SPA protein was lyophilized with no additives.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized SPA in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 0.1mg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized SPA although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution SPA 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.
Greater than 96.0% as determined by:
(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
