Human MICB HEK293 Overexpression Lysate: Product Information
This Human MICB overexpression lysate was created in HEK293 Cells and intented for use as a Western blot (WB) positive control. Purification of MICB protein (Cat: 10759-H03H) from the overexpression lysate was verified.
A DNA sequence encoding the extracellular domain of human MICB (NP_005922.2) (Met 1-Gly 298) was fused with the C-terminal polyhistidine-tagged Fc region of human IgG1 at the C-terminus.
The recombinant human MICB/Fc is a disulfide-linked homodimer. The reduced monomer consists of 524 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 59.5 kDa. In SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions, the apparent molecular mass of rh MICB/Fc monomer is approximately 80-90 kDa due to glycosylation.
Human MICB 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.

MICB Background Information
MHC class I polypeptide-related sequence B, also known as MICB, is a heavily glycosylated protein serving as a ligand for the type II receptor NKG2D. MICB shares 85% amino acid identity with MICA, a closely related protein, both of which contain three extracellular immunoglobulin-like domains, but without capacity to bind peptide or interact with beta-2-microglobulin. acting as a stress-induced self-antigen, binding of MICB to the NKG2D receptor activates the cytolytic response of natural killer (NK) cells, CD8+αβ T cells, and γδ T cells on which the receptor is expressed. MICA/B are minimally expressed on normal cells, but are frequently expressed on epithelial tumors and can be induced by bacterial and viral infections. MICA/B recognition thus is involved in tumor surveillance, viral infections, and autoimmune diseases.
