Human sperm-associated antigen-5 (SPAG5) gene encodes a 1193aa protein, which is associated with the mitotic spindle apparatus. SPAG5 protein may be involved in the functional and dynamic regulation of mitotic spindles. It is an essential component of the mitotic spindle required for normal chromosome segregation and progression into anaphase. SPAG5 is required for chromosome alignment, normal timing of sister chromatid segregation, and maintenance of spindle pole architecture. In complex with SKAP, it promotes stable microtubule-kinetochore attachments. It is also involved in centriole duplication. SPAG5 is required for CDK5RAP2, CEP152, WDR62 and CEP63 centrosomal localization and promotes the centrosomal localization of CDK2. In non-mitotic cells, upon stress induction, SPAG5 inhibits mammalian target of rapamycin complex 1 (mTORC1) association and recruits the mTORC1 component RPTOR to stress granules (SGs), thereby preventing mTORC1 hyperactivation-induced apoptosis It may enhance GSK3B-mediated phosphorylation of other substrates, such as MAPT/TAU. Normally, this gene expression is restricted in human testis tissue, but it also expressed in a wide variety of cancer tissues. As such, SPAG5 is a good candidate protein for anti-tumor vaccine development.

N-terminal domain of human SPAG5 cDNA (2-681aa) was constructed with codon optimization gene synthesis and expressed with a human Alpha Fetal Protein at N-terminal / His Tag /TEV enzyme site/ and 11 arginine (11R tag) at C-terminal. This protein 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.
