Human Transglutaminase 3/TGM3 Baculovirus-Insect cells Overexpression Lysate: Product Information

Product Description
This Human Transglutaminase 3/TGM3 overexpression lysate was created in Baculovirus-Insect cells and intented for use as a Western blot (WB) positive control. Purification of Transglutaminase 3/TGM3 protein (Cat: 11923-H07B) from the overexpression lysate was verified.
Expression Host
Baculovirus-Insect cells
Sequence Information
A DNA sequence encoding the human TGM3 (Q08188) (Ala 2-Glu 693) was expressed, with a polyhistidine tag at the N-terminus.
Molecule Mass
The recombinant human TGM3 consists of 710 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 78.8 kDa. It migrates as an approximately 70 kDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.

Human Transglutaminase 3/TGM3 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.

Transglutaminase 3/TGM3 Background Information

Transglutaminases (TGase) are a family of calcium-dependent acyl-transfer enzymes ubiquitously expressed in mammalian cells and responsible for catalyzing covalent cross-links between proteins or peptides. Transglutaminase 3 (TGM3) is a member of a family of Ca2+-dependent enzymes that catalyze covalent cross-linking reactions between proteins or peptides. TGM3 isoform is widely expressed and is important for epithelial barrier formation. It is a zymogen, requiring proteolysis for activity. Calcium-activated TGM3 can bind, hydrolyze, and is inhibited by GTP, despite lacking structural homology with other GTP binding proteins. TGM3 displays a diffuse cytoplasmic distribution in vitro consistent with its proposed role in the early phase of cornified cell envelope assembly in the cytoplasm. TGM3-driven specific isopeptide bonds between intermediate filaments and KAPs participate to the progressive scaffolding of the hair shaft. Additionally, TGM3 may be a novel prognostic biomarker for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC).
