Human FLAP Baculovirus-Insect cells Overexpression Lysate: 产品信息
This Human FLAP overexpression lysate was created in Baculovirus-Insect cells and intented for use as a Western blot (WB) positive control. Purification of FLAP protein (Cat: 11623-H08B) from the overexpression lysate was verified.
A DNA sequence encoding the full length of human ALOX5AP (NP_001620.2) (Met 1-Pro 161) was fused with a polyhistidine tag at the carboxy-terminus.
The recombinant human ALOX5AP consists of 167 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 19 kDa as estimated in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Human FLAP Baculovirus-Insect cells Overexpression Lysate: 使用指南
Cell lysate was prepared by homogenization of the over-expressed cells in ice-cold modified RIPA Lysis Buffer with cocktail of protease inhibitors (Sigma). Cell debris was removed by centrifugation. Protein concentration was determined by Bradford assay (Bio-Rad protein assay, Microplate Standard assay). The cell lysate was boiled for 5 min in 1 x SDS loading buffer (50 mM Tris-HCl pH 6.8, 12.5% glycerol, 1% sodium dodecylsulfate, 0.01% bromophenol blue) containing 5% b-mercaptoethanol, and lyophilized.
1. Centrifuge the tube for a few seconds and ensure the pellet at the bottom of the tube.
2. Re-dissolve the pellet using 200μL pure water and boil for 2-5 min.
1 X Sample Buffer (1 X modified RIPA buffer+1 X SDS loading buffer).
稳定性 & 储存条件
Store at 4℃ for up to twelve months from date of receipt. After re-dissolution, aliquot and store at -80℃ for up to twelve months. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Western Blot (WB) Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Human FLAP Overexpression Lysate
Arachidonate 5-Lipoxygenase-Activating Protein (ALOX5AP), also known as FLAP, belongs to the MAPEG family. ALOX5AP/FLAP is an essential partner of 5-LO for this process. The FLAP (ALOX5AP) gene has been linked to risk for myocardial infarction, stroke and restenosis, reigniting pharmaceutical interest in this target. It had been found that ALOX5AP/FLAP is a key enzyme in leukotriene formation, in both human pulmonary microvascular endothelial cells and a transformed human brain endothelial cell line. In addition, the protein FLAP has recently been identified as an emerging target in metabolic disease. In fact, FLAP is overexpressed in the adipose tissue of patients and experimental animals with obesity.
