|Description||Fetuin A/AHSG is a human plasma glycoprotein belonging to the Cystatin family of proteases inhibitors. It is highly expressed in embryonic cells and adult hepatocytes, and is expressed to a lesser extent in monocytes/macrophages. Fetuin A/AHSG is a major serum protein component that exerts various calcium dependent physiological activities, and can mediate growth signaling in certain tumor cells. It also can act as a natural antagonist against specific TGF-β and BMP signaling proteins, Recombinant human Fetuin-A is a heterodimeric protein containing a 282 amino acid A chain and a 27 amino acid B chain. Due to glycosylation, recombinant Fetuin-A migrates at an apparent molecular weight of 45 – 55 kDa by SDS-PAGE run under non-reducing conditions.|
|BiologicalActivity||Determined by its ability to inhibit Cathespin V cleavage of a fluorogenic peptide substrate Z-LR-AMC (RLUs). The expected IC50 is ≤ 100nM.|
|Authenticity||Verified by N-terminal and Mass Spectrometry analyses (when applicable).|
|Endotoxin||Endotoxin level is <0.1 ng/ µg of protein (<1EU/ µg).|
|Protein Content||Verified by UV Spectroscopy and/or SDS-PAGE gel.|
|Precautions||Recombinant Human Fetuin A/AHSG is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
