Recombinant Human EFEMP2 Protein

Product Name: Recombinant Human EFEMP2 Protein
Catalog #:  HRP-1191
Manufacture:  LD Biopharma, Inc.

A large number of extracellular matrix proteins have been found to contain variations of the epidermal growth factor (EGF) domain and have been implicated in functions as diverse as blood coagulation, activation of complement and determination of cell fate during development. The protein encoded by human EGF-containing fibulin-like extracellular matrix protein 2 (EFEMP2) gene contains four EGF2 domains and six calcium-binding EGF2 domains. This gene is necessary for elastic fiber formation and connective tissue development. Defects in this gene are cause of an autosomal recessive cutis laxa syndrome. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been identified for this gene.

Full-length mature protein of human EFEMP1 cDNA (26 – 443 aa, derived from BC010456) was constructed with codon optimization and expressed with a small T7-His-TEV cleavage site Tag (29aa) fusion at its N-terminal. This protein is expressed in E.coli as inclusion bodies. The final product was refolded using our unique “temperature shift inclusion body refolding” technology and chromatographically purified.
