You will receive 1 vial of lysate (100ug), 1 vial of empty vector negative control (100ug), and 1 vial of 2xSDS sample buffer (250ul). Each vial of cell lysate contains 100ug of total protein (at 1 mg/ml). The 2xSDS Sample Buffer consists of 4% SDS, 125mM Tris-HCl pH6.8, 10% Glycerol, 0.002% Bromophenol blue, 100mM DTT.

Product Specifications

Application Notes

This product is intended for use as a positive control in Western Blot.

Each vial of cell lysate contains 100ug of total protein which should be sufficient for 20-50 reactions. Depending on over-expression level, antibody affinity and detection system, some lysates can go as low as 0.1 ug per load. We recommend starting with 5ug of cell lysate. Add an equal amount of cell lysate and 2X SDS Sample buffer and boil the SDS samples for 10 minutes before loading.

TMW

82.5 kDa.
Disclaimer note: The observed molecular weight of the protein may vary from the listed predicted molecular weight due to post translational modifications, post translation cleavages, relative charges, and other experimental factors.

Background: CD31/PECAM-1

Cluster of differentiation (CD31), Platelet Endothelial Cell Adhesion Molecule 1 (PECAM-1), is a 30kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein expressed by endothelial cells, platelets, leukocytes and some lymphocytes (e.g., B and T-cell subsets). Structurally, PECAM-1 consists of six extracellular immunoglobulin-like domains which serve to support various functions including homophilic binding, maintaining high expression of PECAM-1 within endothelial intercellular junctions, and supporting endothelial cell migration (1,2). PECAM's homophilic binding underscores its role in vascular barrier integrity and leukocyte trans-endothelial movement. However, PECAM may also engage in heterophilic interactions with molecules such as glycosaminoglycans (GAG), integrin alpha 5 beta 3, CD38 in lymphocytes and CD177/PR3 in neutrophils (2).

PECAM's intracellular cytoplasmic domain consists of a sequence of 118 amino acids and contains serine and tyrosine (also referred to as immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motifs-ITIMs) residues, which may be phosphorylated upon cellular stimulation (3). ITIMs are phosphorylated by Src-family kinases and non-Src family kinases (e.g., Csk), leading to a conformational change which supports interactions with Src homology 2 (SH2) domain containing proteins such as protein-tyrosine phosphatase, SHP-2 (1,2). Formation of SHP-2/PECAM-1 complexes induces endothelial cell migration through the dephosphorylation of focal adhesion kinase and regulation of RhoA activity (1). Signaling downstream of ITIM tyrosine phosphorylations also plays a role in PECAM's anti-apoptotic activity, a function which is independent of its interaction with SHP-2. In platelets and leukocytes, phosphorylation of PECAM's cytosolic domain is inhibitory, preventing their activation.

Product Specific Notices for CD31/PECAM-1 Overexpression Lysate

HEK293T cells in 10-cm dishes were transiently transfected with a non-lipid polymer transfection reagent specially designed and manufactured for large volume DNA transfection. Transfected cells were cultured for 48hrs before collection. The cells were lysed in modified RIPA buffer (25mM Tris-HCl pH7.6, 150mM NaCl, 1% NP-40, 1mM EDTA, 1xProteinase inhibitor cocktail mix, 1mM PMSF and 1mM Na3VO4, and then centrifuged to clarify the lysate. Protein concentration was measured by BCA protein assay kit.This product is manufactured by and sold under license from OriGene Technologies and its use is limited solely for research purposes.

This product is for research use only and is not approved for use in humans or in clinical diagnosis. Lysates are guaranteed for 6 months from date of receipt.
