Human PIGR HEK293 Overexpression Lysate: Product Information
This Human PIGR overexpression lysate was created in HEK293 Cells and intented for use as a Western blot (WB) positive control. Purification of PIGR protein (Cat: 10131-H08H) from the overexpression lysate was verified.
A DNA sequence encoding the extracellular domain (Met 1-Arg 638, 365 Ser/Gly) of human PIGR (NP_002635.2) was expressed with a C-terminal polyhistidine tag.
The soluble form of recombinant human PIGR consists of 630 amino acids after removal of the signal peptide and has a predicted molecular mass of 69 kDa. In SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions, it migrates with an apparent molecular mass of 80-90 kDa due to glycosylation.
Human PIGR 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.

PIGR Background Information
Polymeric immunoglobulin receptor, also known asPIGR, is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamilyand aFc receptor. The ectodomain of this receptor consists of five units with homology to the variable units of immunoglobulins and a transmembrane region, which also has some homology to certain immunoglobulin variable regions. PIGR is expressed on several glandular epithelia including those of liver and breast. The deduced amino-acid sequence has a length of 764 residues and shows an overall similarity of 56% and 64% with the rabbit and rat counterpart. PIGR mediates transcellular transport of polymeric immunoglobulin molecules, and thus facilitates the secretion ofIgAandIgM. During this process, a cleavage occurs that separates the extracellular (known as the secretory component) from the transmembrane segment of PIGR.
