Recombinant Human Family with Sequence Similarity 19 (Chemokine (C-C motif)-like), Member A2
FAM19A2 (TAFA-2) is chemokine-like protein containing ten cysteine residues that are conserved amongst the FAM19A (TAFA) family. This family of proteins was first identified by using a clustering algorithm on uncharacterized cDNA sequences and found to be distantly related to C-C motif chemokines, such as CCL3. FAM19A2 is expressed predominantly in the CNS, with very low expression levels detected in colon and spleen. Expression levels of FAM19A2 are highest in the occipital and frontal cortex and it is believed to be expressed constitutively. FAM19A2 is hypothesized to function as a brain-specific chemokine that regulates immune response in the CNS, as a neurokine that modulates immune response, or as a control of axonal sprouting following brain injury.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized powder. Purified and tested for use in cell culture.
Source: Escherichia coli
MW: ~11.2 kDa (101 amino acids)
Purity: >95% by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analyses
Biological Activity: Fully biologically active when compared to standard. The biological activity is determined by its ability to enhance neurite outgrowth of E16E18 rat embryonic cortical neurons. rHuTAFA2, immobilized at 624 μg/ml on a 96 well plate, is able to significantly enhance neurite outgrowth.
Storage/Handling: Store desiccated at -20°C.
