Control:Fc fusion protein (human), (recombinant)

Negative control for Fc chimeric proteins
ALX-203-004-C050 50 µg 405.00 USD
Do you need bulk/larger quantities?
Negative control for Fc chimeric proteins. Does not bind to a series of ligands in an ELISA assay. Does not inhibit binding between the thymoma cell line EL-4 expressing β3-integrin and astrocytes expressing high level of Thy-1 in mice.

Product Specification

Alternative Name:Thy-1 (RLE mutant)
MW: ~ 53 kDa
Source:Produced in HEK 293 cells. The extracellular domain of mutated hThy-1, hThy-1 (RLE) (aa 20-130), is fused to the Fc portion of human IgG1. The integrin binding sequence RLD of hThy-1 has been changed to RLE abolishing the binding of integrins.
Formulation:Lyophilized. Contains PBS.
Purity:≥90% (SDS-PAGE)
Purity Detail:Purified by multi-step chromatography.
Specificity:Does not bind to β3-integrin nor to any of a large number of tested TNF-superfamily members including rhsTRAIL, rhsCD40L, rhsAPRIL, etc.
Application Notes:Control compound for Fc Tagged Proteins, ELISA, Flow Cytometry, Functional Application (serves as a negative control in functional assays of TNF-superfamily members).
Reconstitution:Reconstitute with 50µl sterile distilled water. Further dilutions should be made with medium containing 5% fetal calf serum or a carrier protein.
Shipping:Shipped on Blue Ice
Long Term Storage:-20°C
Use/Stability:Stable for at least 6 months after receipt when stored as recommended.
Handling:Avoid freeze/thaw cycles. After reconstitution, prepare aliquots and store at -80°C.
Scientific Background:Thy-1 is a glycosyl phosphatidylinositol (GPI)- anchored glycoprotein of the immunoglobulin superfamily expressed in various cell types, particularly in T-lymphocytes and cells of the neuronal system. Thy-1 is involved in cell adhesion, and the presence of a RLD motifs, which is recognized by intengrins, strengthen the hypothesis that the Thy-1:integrin interaction is responsible for cell attachment. In astrocytes, binding of Thy-1 to β3-integrin triggers tyrosine phosphorylation of focal adhesion proteins.
