Recombinant Human FAM3B Protein

Product Name: Recombinant Human FAM3B Protein
Catalog #:  HRP-1455
Manufacture:  LD Biopharma, Inc.

Family with sequence similarity 3 (FAM3) is a cytokine-like gene family. There are four members in this family (FAM3A, FAM3B, FAM3C and FAM3D). The human and mouse FAM3B both have 235 amino acids, sharing 78% identity at amino acid level with 4 conserved cysteines. FAM3B is also named pancreatic-derived factor (PANDER) due to its expression in pancreatic α- and β-cells. Human FAM3B mRNA is expressed highly in pancreas, also expressed in hepatocytes, Purkinje cells in the cerebellum, neurons in the brainstem, and spermatids in testis. In vitro studies demonstrate that FAM3B expression is upregulated by glucose, fatty acids, CCL2, IFNγ alone or combined with IL-1β and TNFα in β-cells, and by insulin and arginine in α-cells. Initial in vitro studies revealed a potential role of FAM3B in pancreatic islet apoptosis. However, animal studies indicate that FAM3B is involved in the regulation of glucose metabolism and lipogenesis by interaction with endocrine pancrease and liver. Recent study showed that mouse FAM3B mRNA is not only expressed in tissues reported before, but also in a broad range of other tissues, including muscle, white and brown fat tissues, small and large intestines, stomach, kidney and heart, suggesting that FAM3B may play a general role in maintaining cell function.

Full-length mature human FAM3B cDNA 30 - 235 aa, Isoform-a, derived from BC057829) was constructed with fully codon optimization strategy and expressed in non-fusion form as inclusion bodies. The final product was refolded using our unique “temperature shift inclusion body refolding” technology and chromatographically purified.
