TWEAKR belongs to the TNF family of transmembrane proteins, and contains a cytoplasmic “death domain”, which can activate a cell's apoptotic machinery. It is expressed in the spleen, thymus, peripheral blood lymphocytes, colon, and small intestine. Signal transduction by TWEAKR can be activated by either membrane-anchored or soluble TWEAK. Recombinant Human soluble TWEAKR is a 53 amino acid polypeptide (5.6 kDa) comprising the entire extracellular domain of the full-length TWEAKR protein.
Amino Acid Sequence
Determined by its ability to inhibit TWEAK-induced weak cell death of HT29 cells. The expected ED50 for this effect is 1.0–3.0 µg/ml.
Endotoxin level is <0.1 ng/μg of protein (<1EU/μg).
Centrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in water to a concentration of 0.1–1.0 mg/ml. Do not vortex. For extended storage, it is recommended to further dilute in a buffer containing a carrier protein (example 0.1% BSA) and store in working aliquots at –20°C to –80°C.
