Human ROBO4 HEK293 Overexpression Lysate: Product Information
This Human ROBO4 overexpression lysate was created in HEK293 Cells and intented for use as a Western blot (WB) positive control. Purification of ROBO4 protein (Cat: 11960-H08H) from the overexpression lysate was verified.
A DNA sequence encoding the human ROBO4 (Q8WZ75-1) N-terminal four domains (Met 1-Glu 469) was expressed, with a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.
The recombinant human ROBO4 consists of 453 amino acids and has a calculated molecular mass of 49 kDa. As a result of glycosylation, it migrates as an approximately 55-60 kDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Human ROBO4 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.

ROBO4 Background Information
Roundabout homolog 4, also known as magic roundabout and ROBO4 is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily and ROBO family. ROBO4 is specifically expressed in endothelial cells. It is expressed at sites of angiogenesis in different tumor types. ROBO4 contains two fibronectin type-III domains and two Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains. ROBO4 is the fourth identified member of the roundabout receptor family. It is the only Robo family member expressed in primary endothelial cells and that application of Slit inhibits their migration. ROBO4 is predominantly expressed in embryonic or tumor vascular endothelium and is considered important for vascular development and as a candidate tumor endothelial marker. ROBO4 is a bona fide member of the Robo family and may provide a repulsive cue to migrating endothelial cells during vascular development. ROBO4 is a receptor for Slit proteins, at least for SLIT2, and seems to be involved in angiogenesis and vascular patterning. ROBO4 may mediate the inhibition of primary endothelial cell migration by Slit proteins. Activating ROBO4 may have broad therapeutic application in diseases characterized by excessive angiogenesis and/or vascular leak.
