|Amount :||25 µg|
|Purification :||Greater than 97.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.|
|Content :||CXCL16 protein was lyophilized from a 0.2µm filtered solution in PBS.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized CXCL16 in sterile 18M-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
|Storage condition :||Lyophilized CXCL16 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution CXCL16 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|

CXC chemokine ligand 16 (CXCL16) is a type I membrane protein, which contains a non-ELR motif-containing CXC chemokine domain in its extracellular region. Human and Mouse CXCL16 share a 70% a.a. sequence similarity within their chemokine domains and 49% overall a.a. sequence identity. Functional CXCL16 can be dropped from the cell surface as an approximately 35kDa soluble protein. CXCR6 is the functional receptor for CXCL16. CXCL16 functions as a scavenger receptor on macrophages, which specifically binds to OxLDL (oxidized low density lipoprotein), proposing that CXCL16 may be involved in pathophysiology such as atherogenesis. In addition, CXCL16 induces a strong chemotactic response and calcium mobilization. CXCL16 binds to CXCR6/Bonzo.
CXCL16 Human Recombinant (30-118 a.a.) produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 89 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 10kDa.The CXCL16 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
The ED50, as measured by its ability to chemoattract mouse CXCR6-transfected mouse BaF3 cells, is less than 12ng/ml.
