Human kynureninase/KYNU Baculovirus-Insect cells Overexpression Lysate


Human kynureninase/KYNU Baculovirus-Insect cells Overexpression Lysate: Product Information

Product Description
This Human kynureninase/KYNU overexpression lysate was created in Baculovirus-Insect cells and intented for use as a Western blot (WB) positive control. Purification of kynureninase/KYNU protein (Cat: 10841-H08B) from the overexpression lysate was verified.
Expression Host
Baculovirus-Insect cells
Sequence Information
A DNA sequence encoding the human KYNU (Q16719) (Met1-Asn46) was expressed with a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.
Molecule Mass
The recombinant human KYNU consists of 475 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 53.7 kDa. The apparent molecular mass of rhKYNU is approximately 47 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.

Human kynureninase/KYNU Baculovirus-Insect cells 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.
Western Blot (WB)
Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

kynureninase/KYNU Background Information

Genetic studies in mouse and human suggest that kynureninase activity may influence blood pressure and renal function. The gene coding kynureninase (KYNU) is also located on chromosome band 2q14-q23, where a linkage peak for essential hypertension was previously detected in the Chinese Han population.The results show that the rare KYNU variant Arg188Gln affects kynureninase activity and are consistent with the hypothesis that this mutation can predispose to essential hypertension.
