Recombinant human PRAME protein with C-terminal human Fc tag
|Amount :||100 µg|
|Purification :||The purity of the protein is greater than 95% as determined by SDS-PAGE and Coomassie blue staining.|
|Content :||Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose is added as protectants before lyophilization.|
|Storage condition :||Store at -80°C for 12 months (Avoid repeated freezing and thawing)|
|Alternative Name :||CT130; MAPE; OIP-4; OIP4|
The protein has a predicted molecular mass of 81.51 kDa after removal of the signal peptide.
This gene encodes an antigen that is preferentially expressed in human melanomas and that is recognized by cytolytic T lymphocytes. It is not expressed in normal tissues, except testis. The encoded protein acts as a repressor of retinoic acid receptor, and likely confers a growth advantage to cancer cells via this function. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
