The Semphorins are a large family of phylogenetically conserved proteins that play a pivotal role in maintaining homeostasis in the immune system. Twenty members of this family have been identified and categorized into eight subclasses based on sequence similarity and distinctive structural features. CD100, also known as Sema4D, is a 150 kDa transmembrane class IV semaphorin. Studies have shown that CD100 can induce monocyte migration, T-cell activation, and B-cell survival, as well as T/B cell and T/DC "cooperation". The CD100 precursor contains 862 amino acids, including a 21 a.a. signal sequence, a 713 a.a. extracellular domain, a 21 a.a transmembrane sequence, and a 107 a.a cytoplasmic region. The extracellular sequence contains several structural features, including a 479 a.a "sema" domain, a 79 a.a. Ig-like sequence, and a 52 a.a "Plexin-type repeat". Recombinant soluble CD100 is a 78.9 kDa protein comprising the extracellular domain of CD100 (711 amino acids). SDS-PAGE analysis run under non-reducing conditions shows a mixture of disulfide linked dimer and monomer.
Human SEMA4D expressed in CHO cells
CAT# CSC-CTK0314-20 (20 μg); CAT# CSC-CTK0314-100 (100 μg)
Greater than 97% as determined by HPLC and SDS-PAGE analysis.
Less than 1 EU/μg.
Lyophilized from a sterile-filtered protein solution in 10 mM sodium phosphate (pH 7.5).
Please centrifuge product briefly before opening vial. The lyophilized protein should be reconstituted in sterile, ultra-pure water to a concentration of 0.1 - 1.0 mg/ml. This solution can then be diluted into other aqueous buffers and stored at -20°C for future use.
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. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
