Human Ephrin A5 HEK293 Overexpression Lysate: Product Information
This Human Ephrin A5 overexpression lysate was created in HEK293 Cells and intented for use as a Western blot (WB) positive control. Purification of Ephrin A5 protein (Cat: 10192-H08H) from the overexpression lysate was verified.
A DNA sequence encoding the extracellular domain (Met 1-Asn 203) of human Ephrin-A5 (NP_001953.1) precursor was expressed with a C-terminal polyhistidine tag.
The recombinant human Ephrin-A5 consists of 194 amino acids and has a calculated molecular mass of 23 kDa. In SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions, the apparent molecular mass of rhEphrin-A5 is approximately 27 kDa due to glycosylation.
Human Ephrin A5 HEK293 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.

Ephrin A5 Background Information
Ephrin-A5 also known as EFNA5, is a member of the Ephrin family. The Eph family receptor interacting proteins (ephrins) are a family of proteins that serve as the ligands of the Eph receptor, which compose the largest known subfamily of receptor protein-tyrosine kinases (RTKs). Ephrin subclasses are further distinguished by their mode of attachment to the plasma membrane: ephrin-A ligands bind EphA receptors and are anchored to the plasma membrane via a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) linkage, whereas ephrin-B ligands bind EphB receptors and are anchored via a transmembrane domain. Ephrin-A5/EFNA5 may function actively to stimulate axon fasciculation. The interaction of EFNA5 with EPHA5 also mediates communication between pancreatic islet cells to regulate glucose-stimulated insulin secretion. Ephrin-A5/EFNA5 also serves as a cognate/functional ligand for EPHA7, their interaction regulates brain development modulating cell-cell adhesion and repulsion.
