Mesothelin Protein, Human, Recombinant: Product Information

Purity
> 85 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Endotoxin
< 1.0 EU per μg protein as determined by the LAL method.
Activity
Testing in progress
Protein Construction
A DNA sequence encoding the human MSLN (NP_005814.2) (Glu296-Gly580) was expressed with two additional amino acids (Gly & Pro) at the N-terminus.
Accession#
Expressed Host
HEK293 Cells
Species
Human
Predicted N Terminal
Gly
Molecule Mass
The recombinant human MSLN consists 287 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 32.4 kDa. The apparent molecular mass of the protein is higher than the theoretical value in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions due to glycosylation.
Formulation
Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4.
Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose, mannitol and 0.01% Tween80 are added as protectants before lyophilization.
Please refer to the specific buffer information in the hard copy of CoA.
Shipping
In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature.
Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
Stability & Storage
Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -20℃ to -80℃
Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Reconstitution
A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.

Mesothelin Background Information

The megakaryocyte potentiating factor belongs to the mesothelin family. This family is comprised of several mammalian pre-pro-megakaryocyte potentiating factor precursor (MPF) or mesothelin proteins. Mesothelin is a glycosylphosphatidylinositol-linked glycoprotein highly expressed in mesothelial cells, mesotheliomas, and ovarian cancer, but the biological function of the protein is not known. Megakaryocyte potentiating factor is highly expressed in mesotheliomas, ovarian cancers, and some squamous cell carcinomas (at protein level). It interacts with MUC16 and potentiates megakaryocyte colony formation in vitro. Megakaryocyte potentiating factor is secreted by several mesothelioma cell lines and is frequently elevated in the blood of patients with mesothelioma. Measurement of this protein may be useful in following the response of mesothelioma to treatment.
