Recombinant Human Myelin Oligodendrocyte Glycoprotein/MOG

Cat.No.: C051

Recombinant Human MOG (C-6His)
Description
Recombinant Human Myelin Oligodendrocyte Glycoprotein is produced by our E.coli expression system and the target gene encoding Gly30-Gly154 is expressed with a 6His tag at the C-terminus.
Accession #:Q16653
Known as:Myelin-Oligodendrocyte Glycoprotein; MOG
Formulation
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution of 20mM HAc-NaAc, 150mM NaCl, pH 4.5.
Quality Control
Purity:Greater than 95% as determined by reducing SDS-PAGE.
Endotoxin:Less than 0.1 ng/µg (1 EU/µg) as determined by LAL test.
Reconstitution
Always centrifuge tubes before opening. Do not mix by vortex or pipetting.
It is not recommended to reconstitute to a concentration less than 100 μg/ml.
Dissolve the lyophilized protein in ddH2O.
Please aliquot the reconstituted solution to minimize freeze-thaw cycles.
Storage
Lyophilized protein should be stored at < -20°C, though stable at room temperature for 3 weeks.
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
Myelin Oligodendrocyte Glycoprotein (MOG) is a transmembrane protein, which is expressed exclusively in the CNS. MOG contains a single Ig-domain exposed to the extracellular space that allows autoantibodies easy access. MOG protein has been identified as a crucial autoantigen for multiple sclerosis in humans. MOG is capable to produce a demyelinating multiple sclerosis-like diseases in experimental animals, namely experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE), in rodents and monkeys.
