>95%, by SDS-PAGE visualized with Silver Staining and quantitative densitometry by Coomassie® Blue Staining.
<0.10 EU per 1 μg of the protein by the LAL method.
N-terminal sequence Analysis
Predicted Molecular Mass
40-60 kDa, under reducing conditions
Measured by its ability to enhance neurite outgrowth of E16-E18 rat embryonic cortical neurons. Recombinant Human DGCR2, immobilized at 2.5 μg/mL on a 96 well plate, is able to significantly enhance neurite outgrowth.
Recombinant Human DGCR2 His-tag Protein, CF Scientific Data Examples
Recombinant Human DGCR2 His-tag Protein SDS-PAGE
2 μg/lane of Recombinant Human DGCR2 His-tag (Catalog # 10161-DG) was resolved with SDS-PAGE under reducing (R) and non-reducing (NR) conditions and visualized by Coomassie® Blue staining, showing bands at 40-60 kDa.
Formulation, Preparation and Storage
What does CF mean?
CF stands for Carrier Free (CF). We typically add Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) as a carrier protein to our
Adding a carrier protein enhances protein stability, increases shelf-life, and allows the recombinant
protein to be stored at a more dilute concentration.
The carrier free version does not contain BSA.
What formulation is right for me?
In general, we advise purchasing the recombinant protein with BSA for use in cell or tissue culture, or
as an ELISA standard.
In contrast, the carrier free protein is recommended for applications, in which the presence of BSA

DiGeorge Syndrome Critical Region 2 (DGCR2), also known as IDD, DGS-C, LAN, and SEZ-12, is an adhesion receptor protein located on the long arm of chromosome 22 (1). The DGCR2 gene encodes an integral membrane protein, consisting of an extracellular domain, a single transmembrane region and a cytoplasmic tail (1). The mature extracellular domain (ECD) of DGCR2 contains both a C-type lectin domain and a cysteine-rich region similar to that of the low density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) (1, 3). The mature ECD of human DGCR2 shares 93% and 92% amino acid sequence identity with mouse and rat, respectively. DGCR2 is expressed during neurodevelopment in human brain tissues (3). Deletion of the 22q11.2 region results in an extremely variable disorder called 22q11.2 deletion syndrome, with a phenotype ranging from very mild symptoms to severe intellectual disability, facial dysmorphism, heart defects, and urogenital abnormalities (4). Recent studies suggest that DGCR2 regulates critical steps of early cortico-genesis possibly through a Reelin-dependent mechanism. Deletion of DGCR2 has a pathogenic impact on cortical formation by reducing protein expression level, and it plays a critical role in vulnerability to schizophrenia (5). Furthermore, expression of DGCR2 together with USP18 gene may serve as a progonostic marker for muscle invasive bladder cancer survival in patients (5).
