Prokineticin-2 (PK2) is a cysteine-rich secreted protein that is expressed in the testis and in lower levels of the small intestine. PK2 regulates various biological functions including gastrointestinal motility, angiogenesis and circadiam rhythms. It is closely related to EG-VEGF (Prokineticin-1) and binds to two orphan B-protein-coupled receptors termed PK-R1 and PK-R2. Recombinant human Prokineticin-2 is an 8.8 kDa protein consisting of 81 amino acid residues and ten cysteine residues that potentially form five pairs of intra-molecular disulfide bonds.
Human PROK2 expressed in E.coli
CAT# CSC-CTK0287-20 (20 μg); CAT# CSC-CTK0287-100 (100 μg)
Greater than 98% as determined by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analysis.
Less than 1 EU/μg.
Lyophilized from a sterile-filtered solution with no additives.
Please centrifuge product before opening vial. The lyophilized protein should be reconstituted with distilled, sterile water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml. For further dilution, carrier protein (0.1% BSA or HSA) should be added to avoid loss of bioactivity.
Storage & Stability
The lyophilized protein, though stable at room temperature for up to 3 weeks, is best stored desiccated at -20°C. Reconstituted protein should be used immediately or stored long-term in undiluted working aliquots at -20°C. For long-term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
