Species: Human Expressing host: E. coli Description: Recombinant Human Complement C5 Protein is produced byE. coliexpression system. The target protein is expressed with sequence (Leu679-Arg751) of human C5a (Accession #NP_001726.2). Tag: No tag Purity: > 94 % by SDS-PAGE. Endotoxin: Please contact us for more information. Biological Activity: Measured by its ability to induce N-acetyl–D-glucosaminidase release from differentiated U937 human histiocytic lymphoma cells. The ED50for this effect is typically 5-15 ng/mL. preparation: Lyophilized from a 0.22 m filtered solution PBS, pH 7.4.Contact us for customized product form or formulation. Storage Store the lyophilized protein at -20C to -80 C for long term.
After reconstitution, the protein solution is stable at -20 C for 3 months, at 2-8 C for up to 1 week.Unopened freeze-dried powder,Store at -20 to -80 °C for twelve months
Redissolution: Centrifuge the vial before opening. Reconstitute to a concentration of 0.1-0.5 mg/mL in sterile distilled water. Avoid votex or vigorously pipetting the protein. For long term storage, it is recommended to add a carrier protein or stablizer (e.g. 0.1% BSA, 5% HSA, 10% FBS or 5% Trehalose), and aliquot the reconstituted protein solution to minimize free-thaw cycles.Redissolution:Store at -20 to -80 °C,avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles
Background Information : This protein is a component of the complement system, a part of the innate immune system that plays an important role in inflammation, host homeostasis, and host defense against pathogens. The encoded preproprotein is proteolytically processed to generate multiple protein products, including the C5 alpha chain, C5 beta chain, C5a anaphylatoxin and C5b. The C5 protein is comprised of the C5 alpha and beta chains, which are linked by a disulfide bridge. Cleavage of the alpha chain by a convertase enzyme results in the formation of the C5a anaphylatoxin, which possesses potent spasmogenic and chemotactic activity, and the C5b macromolecular cleavage product, a subunit of the membrane attack complex (MAC). Mutations in this gene cause complement component 5 deficiency, a disease characterized by recurrent bacterial infections. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. GeneID 727 Swiss Prot P01031 Alias: C5;C5D;C5a;C5b;CPAMD4;ECLZBMedChemExpress (MCE) recombinant proteins include: cytokines, enzymes, growth factors, hormones, receptors, transcription factors, antibody fragments, etc. They are often essential for supporting cell growth, stimulating cell signaling pathways, triggering or inhibiting cell differentiation; and are useful tools for elucidating protein structure and function, understanding disease onset and progression, and validating pharmaceutical targets. At MedChemExpress (MCE), we strive to provide products with only the highest quality. Protein identity, purity and biological activity are assured by our robust quality control and assurance procedures.
