Recombinant Human LYPD8 Fc Chimera Protein, CF

  • Purity
    >95%, by SDS-PAGE visualized with Silver Staining and quantitative densitometry by Coomassie® Blue Staining.
  • Endotoxin Level
    <0.10 EU per 1 μg of the protein by the LAL method.
  • Activity
    Measured by its binding ability in a functional ELISA. When Recombinant Human LYPD8 Fc Chimera is coated at 2 µg/mL, Recombinant Human Galectin‑3 (Catalog # 1154-GA) binds with a typical ED50 = 90-540 ng/mL.

Background: LYPD8
Ly6/PLAUR domain containing 8 (LYPD8), is a GPI-linked protein with structural similarity to the urokinase-type plasminogen activator receptor (uPAR) (1). Mature human LYPD8 contains one uPAR/Ly6 domain and a Ser/Thr/Pro-rich (STP) region that may serve as a target for protease mediated shedding as has been shown for the related C4.4A/LYPD3 molecule (2, 3). Mature human LYPD8 shares 40% amino acid sequence identity with mouse and rat LYPD8.
