Human NKG2D Baculovirus-Insect cells Overexpression Lysate


Human NKG2D Baculovirus-Insect cells Overexpression Lysate: Product Information

Product Description
This Human NKG2D overexpression lysate was created in Baculovirus-Insect cells and intented for use as a Western blot (WB) positive control. Purification of NKG2D protein (Cat: 10575-H07B) from the overexpression lysate was verified.
Expression Host
Baculovirus-Insect cells
Sequence Information
A DNA sequence encoding the human NKG2D (P26718-1) (Phe78-Val216) was fused with a polyhistide tag at the N-terminus.
Molecule Mass
The recombinant human NKG2D consists of 157 amino acids and has a calculated molecular mass of 18.4 kDa. As a result of glycosylation, the apparent molecular mass of human NKG2D is approximately 22.6 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.

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.

NKG2D Background Information

KLRK1 (Killer Cell Lectin Like Receptor K1) is a Protein Coding gene. NKG2D, also known as CD314, is an immune receptor that consists of two disulfide-linked type II transmembrane proteins with short intracellular proteins incapable to transduce signals. To transduce signals, NKG2D needs adaptor proteins and it uses two adaptor proteins, DAP10 and DAP12. These two adaptor proteins associate as homodimers to NKG2D- therefore the entire receptor complex appears as a hexamer. NKG2D can send co-stimulatory signals to activate CD8 T cells. NKG2D also plays an important role in viral control. Cellular stress can induce ligands for NKG2D which results in the cell susceptible to NK cell-mediated lysis.
