ACVR2A Protein, Mouse, Recombinant (His & hFc Tag): Product Information

Purity
> 97 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Endotoxin
< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method
Activity
Measured by its ability to neutralize Activin-mediated inhibition on MPC11 cell proliferation.
The ED50 for this effect is typically 20-60 ng/mL in the presence of 10 ng/mL recombinant Activin A.
Protein Construction
A DNA sequence encoding the extracellular domain of mouse ACVR2A (NP_031422.3) (Met 1-Pro 134) was fused with the C-terminal polyhistidine-tagged Fc region of human IgG1 at the C-terminus.
Accession#
Expressed Host
HEK293 Cells
Species
Mouse
Predicted N Terminal
Ala 20
Molecule Mass
The secreted recombinant mouse ACVR2A/Fc chimera is a disulfide-linked homodimer. The reduced monomer comprises 363 amino acids and has a calculated molecular mass of 41.4 kDa. As a result of glycosylation, the recombinant protein migrates as an approximately 55-65 kDa band 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.

ACVR2A Background Information

ACVR2A and ACVR2B are two activin type II receptors. ACVR2A has been shown to interact with INHBA, SYNJ2BP and ACVR1B. The bovine ACVR2A gene encodes a protein of 513 amino acids which is highly homologous (approximately 98% identity) to the rat, mouse, and human ACVR2A proteins. Inactivation of ACVR2A is a common event in prostate cancer cells suggesting it may play an important role in the development of prostate cancer. The ACVR2A gene is a putative tumor suppressor gene that is frequently mutated in microsatellite-unstable colon cancers (MSI-H colon cancers). Frameshift mutation of ACVR2A may contribute to MSI-H colon tumorigenesis via disruption of alternate TGF-beta effector pathways.
