Recombinant Mouse MDGA1 Protein, CF Summary
Gln19-Pro910, with a C-terminal 6-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.

MDGA1 (MAM domain containing glycosylphosphatidylinositol anchor 1) is a 135-140 kDa glycoprotein within the IgCAM superfamily of adhesion molecules (1-3). MDGA1 is thought to mediate neuronal migration, neurite outgrowth, and cell-cell adhesion within the central and peripheral nervous system (1, 4-8). Mouse MDGA1 precursor is a 940 amino acid (aa) protein that produces an 899 aa mature protein with six Ig-like domains, a fibronectin type III domain (aa 622-724), a MAM domain (aa 736-903), and a GPI anchor (aa 917) (1-3). Mature mouse MDGA1 shares 95%, 97%, and 94% aa sequence identity with mature human, rat, and canine MDGA1, respectively. Mouse MDGA1 also shares 52% aa sequence identity with mouse MDGA2, and may also share some functional redundancy (1, 4). MDGA1 is mainly expressed on restricted populations of neurons in the central and peripheral nervous system, such as embryonic neurons destined for cortical layers 2/3, migrating basilar pontine neurons and D1 interneurons of the spinal cord (1, 5-7). Deletion or down‑regulation of mouse MDGA1 slows radial migration of neurons, indicating a role for MDGA1 in radial migration of cortical neurons (4, 5). MAM and Ig-like domains are involved in heterophilic and homophilic adhesion (7, 8). MDGA1 expression is also reported on primary cells and cell lines from leukemias, lymphomas, and tumors of the lung, colon, uterus, stomach and breast (3).
