Predicted isoelectric point
Predicted Molecular Mass
Accurate Molecular Mass
26kDa as determined by SDS-PAGE reducing conditions.
Freeze-dried powder.
Phenomenon explanation
The possible reasons that the actual band size differs from the predicted are as follows:
1.Splice variants: Alternative splicing may create different sized proteins from the same gene.
2. Relative charge: The composition of amino acids may affects the charge of the protein.
3. Post-translational modification: Phosphorylation, glycosylation, methylation etc.
4. Post-translation cleavage: Many proteins are synthesized as pro-proteins, and then cleaved to give the active form.
5. Polymerization of the target protein: Dimerization, multimerization etc.
Reconstitute in 20mM Tris, 150mM NaCl (pH8.0) to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. Do not vortex.
Preparation and Storage
Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
Store at 2-8ºC for one month.
Aliquot and store at -80ºC for 12 months.

Stability Test: The thermal stability is described by the loss rate. The loss rate was determined by accelerated thermal degradation test, that is, incubate the protein at 37°C for 48h, and no obvious degradation and precipitation were observed. The loss rate is less than 5% within the expiration date under appropriate storage condition.
ISO Certification
Manufactured in an ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 13485:2003 Certified Laboratory.
Supply Chain Verification
Manufactured in a lab with traceable raw materials. Bulk orders can typically be prepared to the customer’s specifications, please inquire.
Other Notes
Small volumes of cPLA2 recombinant protein vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.
Applications Tested/Suitable for cPLA2 recombinant protein
Positive Control. Immunogen, SDS-PAGE, Western Blot (WB).

(May be suitable for use in other assays to be determined by the end user.)

NCBI Summary for cPLA2
This gene encodes a member of the cytosolic phospholipase A2 group IV family. The enzyme catalyzes the hydrolysis of membrane phospholipids to release arachidonic acid which is subsequently metabolized into eicosanoids. Eicosanoids, including prostaglandins and leukotrienes, are lipid-based cellular hormones that regulate hemodynamics, inflammatory responses, and other intracellular pathways. The hydrolysis reaction also produces lysophospholipids that are converted into platelet-activating factor. The enzyme is activated by increased intracellular Ca(2+) levels and phosphorylation, resulting in its translocation from the cytosol and nucleus to perinuclear membrane vesicles. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2015]
UniProt Comments for cPLA2
cPLA2: a calcium-dependent phospholipase A2 that catalyzes the release of arachidonic acid from membrane phospholipids. Selectively hydrolyzes arachidonyl phospholipids in the sn-2 position releasing arachidonic acid. Arachidonic acid is a precursor for the eicosanoids that are involved in hemodynamic regulation, inflammatory responses, and other cellular processes. Promotes cerebellar long-term depression and motor learning. Translocates to the Golgi and endoplasmic reticulum in a calcium-dependent fashion. Translocation and activation of at the ER facilitates the process of ER stress. Regulates the biogenesis of lipid droplets, a process dependent on JNK and ceramide kinase. Stimulated by agonists such as ATP, EGF, thrombin and bradykinin as well as by cytosolic Ca2+. The N-terminal C2 domain, by its association with lipid membranes, mediates the regulation of CPLA2 by presenting the active site to its substrate in response to elevations of cytosolic Ca2+. Inhibited when in trimolecular complex with ANXA2 and S100A10. Phosphorylation of S727 relieves this inhibitory interaction, thus activating PLA2G4A.
