MIA2 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain consisting of 101 amino having a total molecular mass of 11.5 kDa.The MIA2 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
MIA2 performs as a tumour suppressor in hepatocellular carcinoma. MIA2is a novel acute phase protein which its expression is found in the liver and reacts to liver damage in chronic liver diseases and is considerably higher in severe fibrosis patients . MIA2 is induced by IL6, TGF-B & and conditioned medium from activated hepatic stellate cells. MIA2 is is mainly expressed in hepatocytes.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
The MIA2 protein was lyophilized from a concentrated (1mg/ml) solution containing 20mM Phosphate buffer pH=7.4 and 150mM NaCl.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized MIA2 in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized MIA2 althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution MIA2 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
