Human NMNAT2 Baculovirus-Insect cells Overexpression Lysate


Human NMNAT2 Baculovirus-Insect cells Overexpression Lysate: Product Information

Product Description
This Human NMNAT2 overexpression lysate was created in Baculovirus-Insect cells and intented for use as a Western blot (WB) positive control. Purification of NMNAT2 protein (Cat: 11399-H08B) from the overexpression lysate was verified.
Expression Host
Baculovirus-Insect cells
Sequence Information
A DNA sequence encoding the human NMNAT2 (Q9BZQ4-1)(Met1-Gly307) was fused with a polyhistide tag at the C-terminus.
Molecule Mass
The recombinant human NMNAT2 consists of 317 amino acids and has a calculated molecular mass of 35.8 kDa. The recombinant protein migrates as an approximately 35 kDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.

Human NMNAT2 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.

NMNAT2 Background Information

NMNAT2, also known as NMNAT-2, belongs to the nicotinamide mononucleotide adenylyltransferase (NMNAT) enzyme family. NMNAT is a central enzyme in NAD+ biosynthesis, transferring the adenylyl moiety of ATP to nicotinamide mononucleotide (NMN) or nicotinic acid mononucleotide (NaMN) resulting in the formation of NAD+ or NaAD+ and the release of pyrophosphate. NMNAT2 is predominantly expressed in human pancreas, insulinoma as well as in the brain, especially in the cerebrum, cerebellum, occipital lobe, frontal lobe, temporal lobe and putamen. Immunofluorescence microscopy localized endogenous NMNAT2 to the Golgi apparatus in human cell line. Endogenous NMNAT2 seem to be a labile axon survival factor, because specific depletion of NMNAT2 is sufficient to induce Wallerian-like degeneration of uninjured axons which endogenous NMNAT1 and NMNAT3 cannot prevent. Thus endogenous NMNAT2 represents an exciting new therapeutic target for axonal disorders.
