Background Uteroglobin (SCGB1A1) which belongs to the Secretoglobin (SCGBs) superfamily, is a multifunctional protein that exerts anti-inflammatory and anti-tumorigenic effects by binding small hydrophobic molecules such as phospholipids and prostaglandins. Uteroglobin is involved in numerous functions including anti-inflammation, inhibition of phospholipase A2 and the sequestering of hydrophobic ligands. SCGB1A1 is expressed by Clara cells, the non-ciliated, non-mucous secretory cells predominant in lung bronchioles, and by other epithelia which communicate with the external environment. On top of sequestering pro-inflammatory mediators and carcinogens, Uteroglobin is implicated in the inhibition of cell migration and invasion, platelet aggregation, and T cell differentiation. SCGB1A1 gene defects are associated with a susceptibility to asthma.
Description Uteroglobin Mouse Recombinant produced in E.coli is a non-glycosylated disulfide-linked homodimeric protein containing 2x75 amino acids chains and having a molecular mass of 16.7kDa. The SCGB1A1 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Source E.coli
Purity >98.0% as determined by: (a) Analysis by RP-HPLC. (b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
Bioactivity The ED50 as determined by the ability of the immobilized protein to support the adhesion of the A549 human lung carcinoma cells is less than 5.0µg/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of > 200 IU/mg.
PHYSICAL APPEARANCE Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Formulation The Uteroglobin protein was lyophilized from a 0.2µm filtered concentrated solution in PBS, pH 7.4.
Solubility It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized SCGB1A1 in sterile 18M-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Storage Lyophilized Uteroglobin although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution SCGB1A1 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
