Recombinant Human Left-right Determination Factor 2/Lefty-A(N-6His)

Cat.No.: CS50

Recombinant Human Lefty-A (N-6His)
Description
Recombinant Human Left-right Determination Factor 2 is produced by our Mammalian expression system and the target gene encoding Phe78-Pro366 is expressed with a 6His tag at the N-terminus.
Accession #:O00292
Known as:Left-right determination factor 2; Endometrial bleeding-associated factor; Left-right determination factor A; Protein lefty-2; Protein lefty-A; Transforming growth factor beta-4; TGF-beta-4; LEFTY2; EBAF; LEFTA; LEFTYA; TGFB4
Formulation
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution of PBS, pH 7.4.
Quality Control
Purity:Greater than 90% as determined by reducing SDS-PAGE.
Endotoxin:Less than 0.1 ng/µg (1 EU/µg) as determined by LAL test.
Reconstitution
Always centrifuge tubes before opening. Do not mix by vortex or pipetting.
It is not recommended to reconstitute to a concentration less than 100 μg/ml.
Dissolve the lyophilized protein in ddH2O.
Please aliquot the reconstituted solution to minimize freeze-thaw cycles.
Storage
Lyophilized protein should be stored at < -20°C, though stable at room temperature for 3 weeks.
Reconstituted protein solution can be stored at 4-7°C for 2-7 days.
Aliquots of reconstituted samples are stable at < -20°C for 3 months.
Background
Left-right determination factor 2(LEFTY2) is a secreted protein which belongs to the TGF-beta family. Lefty was first identified in a screen for undifferentiated cell-specific cDNAs from the P19 mouse embryonal carcinoma cells. Its mRNA expression on the left side of the developing embryo earned the name “Lefty”. The human orthologue was initially identified as Ebaf, Endometrial bleeding associated factor. Lefty contains the six cysteine residues that are conserved among TGF-β related proteins and that are necessary to form the cysteineknot structure. Its function in patterning left-right asymmetry of the developing organ systems such as the heart and lung is consistent in all vertebrate species examined. Lefty acts as an antagonist to Nodal signaling, potentially by competing for binding to a common receptor. It may play a role in endometrial bleeding.
