Human Lumican HEK293 Overexpression Lysate: Product Information
This Human Lumican overexpression lysate was created in HEK293 Cells and intented for use as a Western blot (WB) positive control. Purification of Lumican protein (Cat: 11640-H08H) from the overexpression lysate was verified.
A DNA sequence encoding the human LUM (NP_002336.1) (Met 1-Asn 338) was fused with a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.
The recombinant human LUM consists of 331 amino acids and has a calculated molecular mass of 38 kDa. The apparent molecular mass of the protein is approximately 45-55 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions due to glycosylation.
Human Lumican 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.

Lumican Background Information
Lumican, a prototypic leucine-rich proteoglycan with keratan sulfate side chains, is a major component of the cornea, dermal, and muscle connective tissues. In these bifunctional molecules, the protein moiety binds collagen fibrils and the highly charged hydrophilic glycosaminoglycans regulate interfibrillar spacings. Lumican is the major keratan sulfate proteoglycan of the cornea but is also distributed in interstitial collagenous matrices throughout the body. Lumican regulates collagenous matrix assembly as a keratan sulfate proteoglycan in the cornea and is also present in the connective tissues of other organs and embryonic corneal stroma as a glycoprotein. Lumican may regulate collagen fibril organization and circumferential growth, corneal transparency, and epithelial cell migration and tissue repair. lumican expressed in injured epithelium may modulate cell behavior such as adhesion or migration, thus contributing to corneal epithelial wound healing. Lumican plays a crucial role in the regulation of collagen assembly into fibrils in various connective tissues and serve as a definitive link between a necessity for lumican in the development of a highly organized collagenous matrix and corneal transparency.
