HTF-2651 Recombinant Human TFAP2A - 11R Protein $300

Recombinant Human TFAP2A - 11R Protein

Product Name: Recombinant Human TFAP2A - 11R Protein
Catalog #:  HTF-2651
Manufacture:  LD Biopharma, Inc.

               The protein encoded by human transcription Factor AP-2-alpha (TFAP2A) gene is a transcription factor that binds the consensus sequence 5'-GCCNNNGGC-3'. The encoded protein functions as either a homodimer or as a heterodimer with similar family members. This protein activates the transcription of some genes while inhibiting the transcription of others. TFAP2A plays important roles in a large spectrum of important biological functions including proper eye, face, body wall, limb and neural tube development. As a heterodimer, they also suppress a number of genes including MCAM/MUC18, C/EBP alpha and MYC. TFAP2A is the only AP-2 protein required for early morphogenesis of the lens vesicle. Defects in this gene are a cause of branchiooculofacial syndrome (BOFS). Recent data indicated that TFAP2A, when combined with DNP63a, GRHL2 and cMyc, as group of trans-differentition factor, which could efficiently convert skin wound resident mesenchymal cells into skin epithelial cells for skin damage repairing.


Full-length human TFAP2A cDNA ( 436aa, Isoform-A, derived BC017754 ) was constructed with codon optimization using gene synthesis technology and expressed with a small T7-His-TEV cleavage site Tag (29aa) fusion at its N-terminal and 11 Poly-Arginine (11R) tag at its C-terminal.  It was expressed in E. coli as inclusion bodies. The final product was refolded using our unique “temperature shift inclusion body refolding” technology and chromatographically purified.
