TACSTD2 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 267 amino acids (31-274a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 29.9kDa. TACSTD2 is fused to a 23 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Tumor-associated calcium signal transducer 2 (TACSTD2), is a member of to the EPCAM family. TACSTD2 is an intronless gene which encodes a carcinoma-associated antigen. TACSTD2 may act as a growth factor receptor and as a cell surface receptor that transduces calcium signals. Mutations of TACSTD2 have been associated with gelatinous drop-like corneal dystrophy.
TACSTD2 protein solution (1mg/ml) contains 20mM Tris-HCl buffer (pH 8.0), 0.4M urea and 10% glycerol.
Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks. Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
