N-terminal sequence Analysis
Predicted Molecular Mass
84-94 kDa, under reducing conditions
Measured by its binding ability in a functional ELISA. When Recombinant Human PLA2G2A (Catalog # 5374-PL) is immobilized at 1 μg/mL, 100 μL/well, the concentration of Recombinant Human Otolin-1 His-tag (Catalog # 10234-OT) that produces 50% of the optimal binding response is 20-100 ng/mL.

Recombinant Human Otolin-1 His-tag Protein Binding Activity
When Recombinant Human PLA2G2A (Catalog # 5374-PL) is immobilized at 1 μg/mL, 100 μL/well, Recombinant Human Otolin-1 (Catalog # 10234-OT) binds with an ED50 of 20-100 ng/mL.
Recombinant Human Otolin-1 His-tag Protein SDS-PAGE
2 μg/lane of Recombinant Human Otolin-1 His-tag (Catalog 10234-OT) was resolved with SDS-PAGE under reducing (R) and non-reducing (NR) conditions and visualized by Coomassie® Blue staining, showing bands at 84-94 kDa and oligomers, respectively.
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

Otolin (OTOL1), also known as C1qTNF15, is an approximately 65 kDa protein found in the otoconial membrane lining the cochlea and vestibular labyrinth of the inner ear (1). It is secreted by supporting cells of the sensory epithelium. The otoconial membrane contains particles known as otoconia which are composed of glycoproteins and proteoglycans coated with calcium carbonate crystals. Otolin is one of the protein components of otoconia particles, and it is important for otoconia formation as well as for auditory and vestibular function (1). It associates into multimers and disulfide-linked oligomers and also associates with other otoconial proteins including and Otoconin-90 (also known as PLA2G2A, PLA2L, and phospholipase A2 homolog) and Cerebellin-1 (1-3). Otolin contains three collagen-like regions followed by a C1q-like domain at the C-terminus (4). It is extensively glycosylated and has multiple hydroxylated proline residues in the collagenous regions. Human Otolin shares 72% amino acid sequence identity with mouse and rat Otolin.
