Specifications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab168687 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

  • Biological activity
    Measured by its ability to enhance LPS-stimulated IL8 secretion by THP1 human acute monocytic leukemia cells. The ED 50 for this effect is typically 0.5-4 µg/mL.
  • Applications

    Functional Studies

    SDS-PAGE

  • Endotoxin level
    < 1.000 Eu/µg
  • Purity
    > 97 % SDS-PAGE.

  • Form
    Lyophilised
  • Concentration information loading...

Preparation and Storage

  • Stability and Storage

    Shipped at 4°C. Store at 4°C prior to reconstitution. Store at -80°C. Avoid freeze / thaw cycle.

    pH: 7.00
    Constituents: 5% Trehalose, 0.75% Glycine, 0.6% Tris

    This product is an active protein and may elicit a biological response in vivo, handle with caution.

  • Reconstitution
    It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized protein in sterile deionized water to a final concentration of 1mg/ml. Solubilize for 30 to 60 minutes at room temperature with occasional gentle mixing. Carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA) is strongly recommended for further dilution and long term storage.

  • Function
    Cooperates with MD-2 and TLR4 to mediate the innate immune response to bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS). Acts via MyD88, TIRAP and TRAF6, leading to NF-kappa-B activation, cytokine secretion and the inflammatory response. Up-regulates cell surface molecules, including adhesion molecules.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed strongly on the surface of monocytes and weakly on the surface of granulocytes; also expressed by most tissue macrophages.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 11 LRR (leucine-rich) repeats.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    N- and O- glycosylated. O-glycosylated with a core 1 or possibly core 8 glycan.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane.
  • Information by UniProt
