Recombinant Human ATP-binding Cassette B5/ABCB5 (N-Trx)

Cat.No.: CG47

Recombinant Human ABCB5 (N-Trx)
Description
Recombinant Human ATP-binding cassette sub-family B member 5 is produced by our E.coli expression system and the target gene encoding Ile141-Val247 is expressed with a Trx tag at the N-terminus.

Reconstituted protein solution can be stored at 4-7°C for 2-7 days.
Aliquots of reconstituted samples are stable at < -20°C for 3 months.
Background
ATP-binding cassette sub-family B member 5(ABCB5) is a plasma membrane-spanning protein. ABCB5 is principally expressed in physiological skin and human malignant melanoma. ABCB5 has been suggested to regulate skin progenitor cell fusion and mediate chemotherapeutic drug resistance in stem-like tumor cell subpopulations in human malignant melanoma. It is commonly over-expressed on circulating melanoma tumour cells. Furthermore, the ABCB5+ melanoma- initiating cells were demonstrated to express FLT1 (VEGFR1) receptor tyrosine kinase which was functionally required for efficient xenograft tumor formation, as demonstrated by shRNA knockdown experiments.
