HTF-2460 Recombinant Human CEBPA Protein $300

Recombinant Human CEBPA Protein

Product Name: Recombinant Human CEBPA Protein
Catalog #:  HTF-2460
Manufacture:  LD Biopharma, Inc.

Human CCAAT/Enhancer-binding protein alpha (CEBPA) gene encodes a transcription factor that coordinates proliferation arrest and the differentiation of myeloid progenitors, adipocytes, hepatocytes, and cells of the lung and the placenta. It binds directly to the consensus DNA sequence 5'-T[TG]NNGNAA[TG]-3' acting as an activator on distinct target genes. During early embryogenesis, it plays essential and redundant functions with CEBPB. It is essential for the transition from common myeloid progenitors (CMP) to granulocyte/monocyte progenitors (GMP). It is critical for the proper development of the liver and the lung. CEBPA is necessary for terminal adipocyte differentiation, is required for postnatal maintenance of systemic energy homeostasis and lipid storage. To regulate these different processes at the proper moment and tissue, it interplays with other transcription factors and modulators. Down-regulates the expression of genes that maintain cells in an undifferentiated and proliferative state through E2F1 repression, which is critical for its ability to induce adipocyte and granulocyte terminal differentiation. Reciprocally E2F1 blocks adipocyte differentiation by binding to specific promoters and repressing CEBPA binding to its target gene promoters. Proliferation arrest also depends on a functional binding to SWI/SNF complex. In liver, it regulates gluconeogenesis and lipogenesis through different mechanisms. To regulate gluconeogenesis, CEBPA functionally cooperates with FOXO1 binding to IRE-controlled promoters and regulating the expression of target genes such as PCK1 or G6PC. To modulate lipogenesis, it interacts and transcriptionally synergizes with SREBF1 in promoter activation of specific lipogenic target genes such as ACAS2. In adipose tissue, it seems to act as FOXO1 co-activator accessing to ADIPOQ promoter through FOXO1 binding sites. Anti-CEBPA auto-antibodies have been found in sera from patients with autoimmune diseases and cancer patients.

Full-length human CEBPA (357aa, derived from BC160133) gene was constructed with codon optimization gene synthesis and expressed with a human alpha Fetal Protein N-terminal (AFPn) -His-TEV cleavage site Tag (217aa) fusion at its N-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.
