Recombinant Mouse NELL2 Protein, CF Summary
Leu25-Leu819, with an N-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.

NELL2 is an approximately 140 kDa secreted glycoprotein that exhibits several actions during nervous system development. NELL2 associates into a homotrimer and contains one Laminin G domain, one vWF-C domain, and six EGF-like domains, followed by one more vWF-C domain (1). Mature mouse NELL2 shares 94% and 97% aa sequence identity with human and rat NELL2, respectively. Alternative splicing generates a cytosolic isoform that associates with PKC beta 1 and can inhibit PKC signaling (2). NELL2 is widely expressed in neurons of the central and peripheral nervous systems, particularly in the hippocampus, hypothalamus, cerebral cortex, and cerebellar cortex (3-5). It is selectively expressed in VGAT1+ or VGAT2+ glutamatergic neurons (4, 6). During development, NELL2 is expressed in select neural crest cells, retinal ganglion cells, and hypaxial muscle precursor cells of the dermomyotome (7). It promotes the differentiation and migration of both motor and sensory neurons (8), enhances neuronal survival (9), and promotes neuronal aggregation by inducing N-Cadherin up-regulation (10). NELL2 supports the release of GnRH from the hypothalamus which is important for the onset of female puberty (5, 6). NELL2 is additionally expressed in renal tubules but is down-regulated in renal cancer (11).
