Melanoma Antigen Family A 8, also known as MAGEA8 belongs to the MAGE gene family, which includes twelve known genes, of which six are expressed in tumors. Furthermore, the MAGE genes were at first isolated from different kinds of tumors, and according to their virtually exclusive tumor-specific expression in adult tissues, they have been used as targets for cancer immunotherapy.
MAGEA8 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 341 amino acids (1-318 a.a) and having a molecular mass of 37.6kDa.MAGEA8 is fused to a 23 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
