MIA-2 is a secreted cytokine and a member of the MIA/OTOR family. Members of this family which also includes MIA, OTOR, and TANGO share a Src homology-3 (SH3)-like domain. MIA2 is predominantly expressed in hepatocytes. Elevated levels of MIA2 may represent a clinically useful marker for diagnosis of hepatic disease activity and severity. Recombinant human MIA-2 is a 101 amino acid, 11.5 kDa protein comprising the MIA homologous N-terminal region of the full length MIA-2 protein.
Human MIA2 expressed in E.coli
CAT# CSC-CTK0457-20 (20 μg); CAT# CSC-CTK0457-100 (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.
