Sterile filtered colorless solution.
Legumain, also known as LGMN, is a cysteine endopeptidase which demonstrates strict specificity for hydrolysis of asparaginyl bonds. Furthermore, LGMN can also cleave aspartyl bonds slowly, in particular under acidic conditions. LGMN plays an essential role in the endosomal/lysosomal degradation system as the Legumain deficiency causes the accumulation of pro cathepsins B, H & L, another group of lysosomal cysteine proteases. Furthermore, over expression of LGMN in tumors is important for invasion/metastasis.
LGMN produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain (18-433 a.a.) and fused to a 6 aa His Tag at C-terminus containing a total of 422 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 48.4kDa (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 40-57kDa).LGMN is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
