Human C1QB Baculovirus-Insect cells Overexpression Lysate: Product Information
This Human C1QB overexpression lysate was created in Baculovirus-Insect cells and intented for use as a Western blot (WB) positive control. Purification of C1QB protein (Cat: 10941-H08B) from the overexpression lysate was verified.
A DNA sequence encoding the human C1QB (NP_000482.3) precursor (Met 1-Ala 253) was expressed, with a carboxy-terminal polyhistidine tag.
The recombinant human C1QB consists of 237 amino acids with the predicted molecular mass of 25 kDa. As a result of glycosylation, rhC1QB migrates as an approximately 30 kDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Human C1QB Baculovirus-Insect cells Overexpression Lysate: Usage Guide
Cell lysate was prepared by homogenization of the over-expressed cells in ice-cold modified RIPA Lysis Buffer with cocktail of protease inhibitors (Sigma). Cell debris was removed by centrifugation. Protein concentration was determined by Bradford assay (Bio-Rad protein assay, Microplate Standard assay). The cell lysate was boiled for 5 min in 1 x SDS loading buffer (50 mM Tris-HCl pH 6.8, 12.5% glycerol, 1% sodium dodecylsulfate, 0.01% bromophenol blue) containing 5% b-mercaptoethanol, and lyophilized.
1. Centrifuge the tube for a few seconds and ensure the pellet at the bottom of the tube.
2. Re-dissolve the pellet using 200μL pure water and boil for 2-5 min.
1 X Sample Buffer (1 X modified RIPA buffer+1 X SDS loading buffer).
Stability & Storage
Store at 4℃ for up to twelve months from date of receipt. After re-dissolution, aliquot and store at -80℃ for up to twelve months. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Western Blot (WB) Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

C1QB Background Information
Complement Component 1, q subcomponent (C1q) associates with C1r and C1s in order to yield the first component of the serum complement system. Deficiency of C1q has been associated with lupus erythematosus and glomerulonephritis. C1q is composed of 18 polypeptide chains: six A-chains, six B-chains, and six C-chains. Southern blot analysis of chromosomal DNA from vertebrate species demonstrated highest similarity between the C1qB genes, followed by C1qC and finally C1qA. Sequence comparison of C1q from three different species have shown that the B chains have the strongest similarity. C1q was already present at embryonic day 14 (E14) and showed little change in abundance through six weeks postnatal. At E16, C1qB mRNA was present at high abundance in putative microglia/macrophages in cortical marginal and intermediate zones, and hippocampal analge.
