Human RGMA HEK293 Overexpression Lysate: Product Information
This Human RGMA overexpression lysate was created in HEK293 Cells and intented for use as a Western blot (WB) positive control. Purification of RGMA protein (Cat: 12086-H08H) from the overexpression lysate was verified.
A DNA sequence encoding the human RGMA isoform 3 (NP_064596.2) (Met 1-Gly 422), without the C-terminal pro peptide, was fused with a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.
The secreted recombinant human RGMA consists of 386 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 43 kDa. As a result of glycosylation and proteolytic processing, rhRGMA migrates mainly as an approximately 36 kDa in SDS-PAGE corresponding to the mature segment under reducing conditions, and the un-cleaved pro form can also be seen.
Human RGMA 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.

RGMA Background Information
RGMa, also known as RGM domain family, member A, belongs to the RGM (repulsive guidance molecule) family whose members are membrane-associated glycoprotein. RGMa is a glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored glycoprotein that functions as an axon guidance protein in the developing and adult central nervous system. It helps guide Retinal Ganglion Cell (RGC) axons to the tectum in the midbrain. RGMa has been implicated to play an important role in the developing brain and in the scar tissue that forms after a brain injury. This protein may also function as a tumor suppressor in some cancers.
