DKK1 Protein, Rhesus, Recombinant (256 Asn/Gln, His Tag)


DKK1 Protein, Rhesus, Recombinant (256 Asn/Gln, His Tag): Product Information

> 97 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method
Measured by its ability to inhibit Wnt3a-induced alkaline phosphatase production by C3H10T1/2 2A6 mouse embryonal fibroblast cells . The ED50 for this effect is typically 0.5-3 μg/ml in the presence of 10 ng/mL of Wnt3a.
Protein Construction
A DNA sequence encoding the rhesus DKK1 (XP_001098844.1) precursor (Met 1-His 266) (256 Asn / Gln) was expressed, fused with a C-terminal polyhistidine tag.
Expressed Host
HEK293 Cells
Predicted N Terminal
Thr 32
Molecule Mass
The recombinant rhesus DKK1 comprises 246 amino acids with a predicted molecular mass of 27.2 kDa. As a result of glycosylation, the apparent molecular mass of rhesus DKK1 is approximately 38-43 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4
1. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose, mannitol and 0.01% Tween80 are added as protectants before lyophilization. Specific concentrations are included in the hardcopy of COA.
2. Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
Please refer to the specific buffer information in the hard copy of CoA.
In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature.
Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.

DKK1 Background Information

Dickkopf (DKK) family proteins, consisting of DKK-1, DKK-2, DKK-3 and DKK-4, function as secreted Wnt antagonists by inhibiting Wnt coreceptors LRP5/6. DKK-1, DKK-2, and DKK-4 also bind cell surface Kremen-1 or Kremen-2 and promote the internalization of LRP5/6. Dickkopf related protein 1 (DKK-1) was initially identified as an inducer of head formation in Xenopus embryos. DKK-1 protein modulates Wnt signaling pathway during embryonic development. Increased levels of DKK-1 are found in the majority of lung cancers, esophageal squamous cell carcinomas, and hormone-resistant breast cancers, while DKK-1 expression is decreased in malignant melanoma and colorectal cancers.
