This Mouse PD-L2 overexpression lysate was created in HEK293 Cells and intented for use as a Western blot (WB) positive control. Purification of PD-L2 protein (Cat: 50804-M08H) from the overexpression lysate was verified.
A DNA sequence encoding the extracellular domain of mouse PDCD1LG2 (Q9WUL5) (Met 1-Arg 219) was expressed, with a C-terminal polyhistidine tag.
The secreted recombinant mouse PDCD1LG2 comprises 211 amino acids and has a calculated molecular mass of 24 kDa. As a result of glycosylation, the apparent molecular mass of rmPDCD1LG2 is approximately 35-45 kDa in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Mouse PD-L2 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.
Programmed death ligand 2 (PD-L2), also referred to as B7-DC and CD273, is a member of the B7 family of proteins including B7-1, B7-2, B7-H2, B7-H1 (PD-L1), and B7-H3. PD-L2 is a type I membrane protein and structurally consists of an extracellular region containing one V-like and one C-like Ig domain, a transmembrane region, and a short cytoplasmic domain. PD-L2 is expressed on antigen presenting cells, placental endothelium and medullary thymic epithelial cells, and can be induced by LPS in B cells, INF-γ in monocytes, or LPS plus IFN-γ in dendritic cells. The CD28 and B7 protein families are critical regulators of immune responses. PD-L2 and PD-L1 are two ligands for PD-1, member of the CD28/CTLA4 family expressed on activated lymphoid cells, and thus provide signals for regulating T cell activation and immune tolerance. The interaction of B7-DC/PD-1 exhibited a 2-6-fold higher affinity compared with the interaction of B7-H1/PD-1.
