MAGEA3 produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 337 amino acids (1-314 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 37.1kDa.MAGEA3 is fused to a 23 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
MAGE belongs to the MAGE gene family, that comprises 12 known genes, of which 6 are expressed in tumors. The Melanoma-associated antigen 3 genes were originally isolated from different kinds of tumors, and based on their virtually limited tumor-specific expression in adult tissues, they were used as targets for cancer immunotherapy. MAGEA3 is a tumor-specific antigen extensively expressed in solid and hematologic malignancies, but not in normal tissues, with the exclusion of testis and placenta. Consequently, MAGEA3 is an outstanding candidate tumor antigen.
