HRP-1813 Recombinant Human GPC1 Protein $300

Recombinant Human GPC1 Protein

Product Name: Recombinant Human GPC1 Protein
Catalog #:  HRP-1813
Manufacture:  LD Biopharma, Inc.

GPC1 (Glypican-1) is cell surface proteoglycan that bears heparan sulfate. It binds, via the heparan sulfate side chains, alpha-4 (V) collagen and participates in Schwann cell myelination. It may act as a catalyst in increasing the rate of conversion of prion protein PRPN(C) to PRNP(Sc) via associating (via the heparan sulfate side chains) with both forms of PRPN, targeting them to lipid rafts and facilitating their interaction. PRC1 is required for proper skeletal muscle differentiation by sequestering FGF2 in lipid rafts preventing its binding to receptors (FGFRs) and inhibiting the FGF-mediated signaling.

Full-length mature human GPC1 cDNA (24-530aa) 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 in E.coli as inclusion bodies. The final product was refolded using our unique “temperature shift inclusion body refolding” technology and chromatographically purified.
