Sterile filtered colorless solution.
Lumican also known as LUM belongs to the small leucine-rich proteoglycan (SLRP) family which comprises decorin, biglycan, fibromodulin, keratocan, epiphycan, and osteoglycin. Furthermore we can see that in these bifunctional molecules, the protein moiety binds collagen fibrils and the highly charged hydrophilic glycosaminoglycans regulate interfibrillar spacings. Lumican is the main keratan sulfate proteoglycan of the cornea however LUM is also distributed in interstitial collagenous matrices throughout the body. Lumican regulates collagen fibril organization and circumferential growth, corneal transparency, epithelial cell migration and tissue repair. Among the diseases associated with LUM is posterior amorphous corneal dystrophy.
LUM Human Recombinant produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 329 amino acids (19-338 aa) and having a molecular mass of 37.7kDa (Migrates at 40-57kDa on SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions).LUM is expressed with a 6 amino acid His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
