Molecule Mass
The recombinant human VSIG4/Fc is a disulfide-linked homodimer. The reduced monomer comprises 505 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 56.2 kDa. The apparent molecular mass of the protein is approximately 57 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
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.

VSIG4 Background Information

VSIG4 (V-set and immunoglobulin domain containing 4), also known as complement receptor of the immunoglobulin superfamily (CRIg) and Z39Ig, is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein. It is a B7 family-related protein and an Ig superfamily member. In contrast to the B7 family members which contain two IgG domains, VSIG4 contains one complete V-type Ig domain and a truncated C-type Ig domain. VSIG4 is exclusively expressed on tissue resident macrophages and binds to multimers of C3b and iC3b that are covalently attached to particle surfaces. No VSIG4 expression appears to be present in T and B cells. VSIG4 functions as a negative regulator of T cell activation, and may be involved in the maintenance of peripheral T cell tolerance, and is also identified as a potent suppressor of established inflammation. Mouse VSIG4 is synthesized as a 28 amino acid precursor that contains a signal sequence, an V-type Ig domain (aa 36-115), one potential N-linked glycosylation site, and a single transmembrane domain. The V-type Ig domain of mouse VSIG4 shares 86% and 8% aa sequence identity with the V-type Ig domains of rat and human VSIG4, respectively.
