Recombinant Human Von Hippel-Lindau Protein b-domain produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 174 amino acids (1-154) & having a molecular mass of 19.2 kDa. The Von Hippel-Lindau antigen is fused to 20 amino acid His-Tag at N-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatography techniques.
Von Hippel-Lindau disease is a dominant inherited syndrome characterized by the predisposition to develop various kinds of benign and malignant tumors, including clear cell renal carcinomas, pheochromocytomas and hemangioblastomas of the central nervous system and retina. VHL syndrome is caused by germline mutation in the VHL tumor suppressor, and VHL tumors are associated with loss or mutation of the remaining wild-type allele. VHL has two domains: a roµghly 100-residue NH2-terminal domain rich in b sheet (b-domain) and a smaller a-helical domain (a-domain), held together by two linkers and a polar interface. VHL protein is also involved in the degradation of hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF).
