MFAP4 Human Recombinant produced in E. coli is a single polypeptide chain containing 259 amino acids (22-255) and having a molecular mass of 29.2 kDa.MFAP4 is fused to a 25 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Microfibrillar-associated protein 4 (MFAP4) is a member of Fibrinogen protein family and contains 1 fibrinogen C-terminal domain. The MFAP4 protein has similarity to a bovine microfibril-associated protein. MFAP4 has binding specificities for both collagen and carbohydrate. MFAP4 is believed to be an extracellular matrix protein that is involved in cell adhesion or intercellular interactions. MFAP4 deletion was found in 30 of 31 Smith-Magenis syndrome (SMS) patients.
Microfibrillar-Associated Protein 4, Microfibril-Associated Glycoprotein 4.
