The production of this recombinant Rat S100a8 protein is just like all recombinant proteins. The process involved transfecting E.coli cells with DNA vector containing the template of recombinant DNA. The E.coli cells containing the template were then cultured so that they could transcribe and translate the S100a8 protein. N-terminal 6xHis tag was used in the process. The purity is 90% determined by SDS-PAGE. (The activity of this S100a8 protein has been validated.)
S100a8 is a gene providing instructions for making a protein called protein S100-A8 (alternative name: calgranulin-A, migration inhibitory factor-related protein 8 (MRP8), p8 or S100 calcium-binding protein A8). Protein S100-A8 is a member of the S100 family of leukocyte proteins and is a calcium-binding protein, which plays a prominent role in the regulation of inflammatory processes and immune response. Increasing evidence indicates that protein S100-A8 may be associated with lymph nodes metastasis of breast cancer and be a marker for progression of breast cancer.

|Target Protein Sequence
Note: The complete sequence including tag
sequence, target protein sequence and linker sequence could be provided upon request.
||Full Length of Mature Protein
Liquid or Lyophilized powder
Note: We will preferentially ship the format that
we have in stock, however, if you have any special requirement for the format, please remark your
requirement when placing the order, we will prepare according to your demand.
|| If the delivery form is liquid, the default storage buffer is Tris/PBS-based buffer, 5%-50% glycerol.
Note: If you have any special requirement for the
glycerol content, please remark when you place the order.
If the delivery form is lyophilized powder, the buffer before lyophilization is Tris/PBS-based buffer,
6% Trehalose, pH 8.0.
||We recommend that this vial be briefly centrifuged prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Please reconstitute protein in deionized sterile water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL.We recommend to add 5-50% of glycerol (final concentration) and aliquot for long-term storage at -20°C/-80°C. Our default final concentration of glycerol is 50%. Customers could use it as reference.
||Store at -20°C/-80°C upon receipt, aliquoting is necessary for mutiple use. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw
||The shelf life is related to many factors, storage state, buffer ingredients, storage temperature
and the stability of the protein itself.
Generally, the shelf life of liquid form is 6 months at -20°C/-80°C. The shelf life of lyophilized
form is 12 months at -20°C/-80°C.
||3-7 business days
||Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Store working aliquots at 4°C for up to one week.
