Recombinant Rat Osteoactivin/GPNMB Fc Chimera Protein, CF Summary
When Recombinant Mouse Integrin alpha V beta 3 (Catalog # 7889-AV) is immobilized at 2 µg/mL (100 µL/well), Recombinant Rat Osteoactivin/GPNMB Fc Chimera (Catalog # 11203-AC) binds with an ED50 of 0.700-7.00 µg/mL.
Accession # NP_579832.1
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.

2 μg/lane of Recombinant Rat Osteoactivin/GPNMB Fc Chimera Protein (Catalog # 11203-AC) was resolved with SDS-PAGE under reducing (R) and non-reducing (NR) conditions and visualized by Coomassie® Blue staining, showing bands at 100-122 kDa and 200-240 kDa, respectively.
Osteoactivin (also GPNMB and DC-HIL) is a variably glycosylated 75 - 125 kDa member of the NMB/pMEL-17 family of molecules. It is found in multiple subcellular sites, but is most often associated with the endosomal/lysosomal compartment (1, 2, 3). Human Osteoactivin is a 560 amino acid (aa) type I transmembrane protein. Its precursor contains a 21 aa signal sequence, a 465 aa luminal/extracellular domain, a 21 aa transmembrane segment and a 53 aa cytoplasmic tail (4, 5). The luminal region contains an N-terminal heparin-binding motif (aa 23 - 26), multiple glycosylation sites, an RGD motif (aa 64 - 66) and an 88 aa PKD domain (aa 240 - 327). The intracellular tail has an ITAM (Y-x-x-I) and lysosomal targeting (L-L) motif (4, 5). The extracellular/luminal region of rat Osteoactivin shares 71% and 89% aa identity with human and mouse Osteoactivin. Multiple isoforms would appear to exist. There is one alternate splice form known that shows a 12 aa insert between aa 339 - 340 (6). An addtional 206 aa isoform shows a mutation at position # 181 that results in a 26 aa substitution for the C-terminal 380 amino acids (7, 8). This has the potential to be soluble and may represent a counterpart to a secreted isoform of rat Osteoactivin (9). Cells known to express Osteoactivin include macrophages/Kupffer cells, fibroblasts, osteoblasts, myeloid dendritic cells, retinal pigment epithelial cells and melanocytes, plus fetal chondrocytes and stratum basale keratinocytes (3, 4, 5, 10, 11, 12). In mice, Osteoactivin is reported to bind to heparan sulfate-proteoglycan, possibly on the surface of endothelial cells and may also interact with integrins (13). It also appears to act as an inflammatory suppressor gene, as its expression downregulates the macrophage inflammatory response by inhibiting IL-6 and IL-12p40 production (3).
