Human Factor D HEK293 Overexpression Lysate: Product Information
This Human Factor D overexpression lysate was created in HEK293 Cells and intented for use as a Western blot (WB) positive control. Purification of Factor D protein (Cat: 10160-H08H) from the overexpression lysate was verified.
A DNA sequence encoding the mature form of human CFD (P00746) (Ile 26-Ala 253) was fused with a C-terminal polyhistidine tag and a signal peptide at the N-terminus.
The secreted recombinant human CFD consists of 239 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 25.8 kDa. As a result of glycosylation, rh CFD migrates as an approximately 33 kDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Human Factor D 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.
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.

Factor D Background Information
Complement factor D, also known as Adipsin, C3 convertase activator, Properdin factor D and CFD is a secreted protein which belongs to thepeptidase S1 family. CFD / Adipsin contains onepeptidase S1 domain. Complement factor D ( CFD / Adipsin ) is a component of the alternative complement pathway best known for its role in humoral suppression of infectious agents. Complement factor D ( CFD / Adipsin ) has a high level of expression in fat, suggesting a role for adipose tissue in immune system biology. This protein is also a serine protease that is secreted by adipocytes into the bloodstream. Complement factor D ( CFD / Adipsin ) cleaves factor B when the latter is complexed with factor C3b, activating the C3bbb complex, which then becomes the C3 convertase of the alternate pathway. Its function is homologous to that of C1s in the classical pathway. Complement factor D ( CFD / Adipsin ) is a serine protease that stimulates glucose transport for triglyceride accumulation in fats cells and inhibits lipolysis. Defects in CFD / Adipsin are the cause of complement factor D deficiency (CFD deficiency) which predisposes to invasive meningococcal disease.
