Human IFN-beta CHO Stable Overexpression Lysate: Product Information

Product Description
This Human IFN-beta overexpression lysate was created in CHO Stable Cells and intented for use as a Western blot (WB) positive control. Purification of IFN-beta protein (Cat: 10704-HNAS) from the overexpression lysate was verified.
Expression Host
CHO Stable Cells
Species
Human
Sequence Information
A DNA sequence encoding the human IFNβ (P01574) (Met1-Asn187) was expressed.
Molecule Mass
The recombinant human IFNβ consists of 166 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 20 KDa. It migrates as an approximately 20-23 KDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.

Human IFN-beta CHO Stable Overexpression Lysate: Usage Guide

Preparation Method
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.
Lysis Buffer
Modified RIPA Lysis Buffer: 50 mM Tris-HCl pH 7.4, 150 mM NaCl, 1mM EDTA, 1% Triton X-100, 0.1% SDS, 1% Sodium deoxycholate, 1mM PMSF.
Recommend Usage
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.
Sample Buffer
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.
Application
Western Blot (WB)
Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

IFN-beta Background Information

Interferons (IFNs) are natural glycoproteins belonging to the cytokine superfamily, and are produced by the cells of the immune system of most vertebrates in response to challenges by foreign agents such as viruses, parasites and tumor cells. Interferon-beta (IFN beta) is an extra-cellular protein mediator of host defense and homeostasis. IFN beta has well-established direct antiviral, antiproliferative and immunomodulatory properties. Recombinant IFN beta is approved for the treatment of relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis. The recombinant IFN beta protein has the theoretical potential to either treat or cause autoimmune neuromuscular disorders by altering the complicated and delicate balances within the immune system networks. It is the most widely prescribed disease-modifying therapy for multiple sclerosis (MS). Large-scale clinical trials have established the clinical efficacy of IFN beta in reducing relapses and slowing disease progression in relapsing-remitting MS. IFN beta therapy was shown to be comparably beneficial for opticospinal MS (OSMS) and conventional MS in Japanese. IFN beta is effective in reducing relapses in secondary progressive MS and may have a modest effect in slowing disability progression. In addition to the common antiviral activity, IFN beta also induces increased production of the p53 gene product which promotes apoptosis, and thus has therapeutic effect against certain cancers. The role of IFN-beta in bone metabolism could warrant its systematic evaluation as a potential adjunct to therapeutic regimens of osteolytic diseases. Furthermore, IFN beta might play a beneficial role in the development of a chronic progressive CNS inflammation.
