Recombinant Human OMgp Protein, CF Summary
All experiments were done under carrier-free conditions.
Ile25-Asn420, with a C-terminal 10-His tag
CF stands for Carrier Free (CF). We typically add Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) as a carrier protein to our recombinant proteins. Adding a carrier protein enhances protein stability, increases shelf-life, and allows the recombinant protein to be stored at a more dilute concentration. The carrier free version does not contain BSA.
In general, we advise purchasing the recombinant protein with BSA for use in cell or tissue culture, or as an ELISA standard. In contrast, the carrier free protein is recommended for applications, in which the presence of BSA could interfere.

Oligodendrocyte myelin glycoprotein (OMgp or OMG), Nogo, and myelin-associated glycoprotein (MAG), are three myelin-derived axon outgrowth inhibitors that collapse axonal growth cones and inhibit neurite outgrowth (1 - 3). These three structurally distinct proteins contribute to the myelin-associated inhibitory activity that prevents axonal regeneration after injury of the adult central nervous system (CNS). Human OMgp cDNA encodes a 440 amino acid (aa) residue glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored protein that has a 24 aa signal peptide, eight leucine-rich repeats (LRR) followed by five serine/threonine-rich repeats (4). OMgp has multiple potential N-glycosylation and O-glycosylation sites. Mouse and human OMgp share approximately 88% aa sequence identity. OMgp is expressed on the surface of oligodendrocytes and on large projection neurons, including Purkinje cells of the cerebellum, pyramidal cells of the hippocampus, motoneurons of the brainstem and anterior horn cells of the spinal cord (5). The neurite outgrowth inhibitory activities of all three myelin-derived proteins are mediated by binding to a common receptor complex consisting of the Nogo receptor (NgR) and the p75 neurotrophin receptor (NGFR) (2, 3). Besides its function in the inhibition of axonal growth, OMgp has also been implicated in the inhibition of proliferation. Although the transmembrane receptor that mediates the proliferation inhibition activity has not been identified, the LRR repeats of OMgp were shown to be essential for both the proliferation inhibition and neurite outgrowth inhibition activities (6).
