This Mouse ESAM overexpression lysate was created in HEK293 Cells and intented for use as a Western blot (WB) positive control. Purification of ESAM protein (Cat: 50977-M08H) from the overexpression lysate was verified.
A DNA sequence encoding the mouse ESAM (Q925F2) (Met 1-Ala 251) was expressed, with a C-terminal polyhistidine tag.
The secreted recombinant mouse ESAM comprises 233 amino acids and has a calculated molecular mass of 25.6 kDa. As a result of different glycosylation, the apparent molecular mass of the recombinant protein is approximately 33-43 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Mouse ESAM HEK293 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.
Endothelial cell-selective adhesion molecule (ESAM) is a member of JAM family of immunoglobulin superfamily and consists of one V-type and one C2-type immunoglobulin domain, as well as a hydrophobic signal sequence, a single transmembrane region, and a cytoplasmic domain. It is specifically expressed at endothelial tight junctions and on activated platelets. ESAM at endothelial tight junctions participates in the migration of neutrophils through the vessel wall, possibly by influencing endothelial cell contacts. The adaptor protein membrane-associated guanylate kinase MAGI-1 has been identified as an intracellular binding partner of ESAM. Previous studies have indicated that ESAM regulates angiogenesis in the primary tumor growth and endothelial permeability. It suggest that ESAM has a redundant functional role in physiological angiogenesis but serves a unique and essential role in pathological angiogenic processes such as tumor growth.
