Tag Info
Tag type will be determined during the manufacturing process.
The tag type will be determined during production process. If you have specified tag type, please tell us and we will develop the specified tag preferentially.
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.
Buffer before Lyophilization
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℃/-80℃. Our default final concentration of glycerol is 50%. Customers could use it as reference.
Troubleshooting and FAQs
Storage Condition
Store at -20°C/-80°C upon receipt, aliquoting is necessary for mutiple use. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Shelf Life
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.
Lead Time
Delivery time may differ from different purchasing way or location, please kindly consult your local distributors for specific delivery time.
Note: All of our proteins are default shipped with normal blue ice packs, if you request to ship with dry ice, please communicate with us in advance and extra fees will be charged.
Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Store working aliquots at 4°C for up to one week.

Target Background

May function as a regulator of the EGFR pathway. Probable tumor suppressor which may function in cell growth, proliferation and adhesion.
Gene References into Functions
  1. NGX6 is lowly expressed in nasopharyngeal carcinoma, and it can inhibit the proliferation and invasion of nasopharyngeal carcinoma cells. PMID: 29243779
  2. NGX6 possesses various biological functions, such as regulating protein expression of related genes, involving cell signal transduction pathways, negatively controlling cell cycle progression, inhibiting angiogenesis, and increasing the sensitivity of patients to anti-cancer drugs. Review. PMID: 26880583
  3. Ultrasonographic features are associated with NGX6 expression in invasive ductal breast carcinoma. NGX6 is involved in the invasion and metastasis activity of IDBC. PMID: 26261522
  4. From our analysis, variants in the genes ABCB4, TP53AIP1, ARHGAP32 and TMEM88B were identified linked to the alexithymia phenotype. PMID: 25882097
  5. The seven-transmembrane domain of NGX6a was found to be the critical region for the degradation of NGX6a, and the amino terminus of ezrin is required for the induction of NGX6a degradation. PMID: 25378401
  6. These results demonstrate that Egr-1 regulates NGX6 gene transcription through an overlapping Sp1/Egr-1 binding site as a positive regulator of NGX6 gene. PMID: 25029911
  7. downregulation of NGX6 expression contributes to the development and progression of gastric cancer PMID: 24338274
  8. the levels of the NGX6 protein and mRNA were lower in patients with tamoxifen-resistant tumors compared to patients with tamoxifen-sensitive tumors PMID: 23588848
  9. The present study was aimed to investigate the possible association between 19-base pair (bp) deletion polymorphism of the DHFR gene (rs70991108), null genotype of UGT2B17 as well as the expression level of NGX6 with the risk of breast cancer. PMID: 23053953
  10. Data suggest that nasopharyngeal carcinoma-associated gene 6 (NGX6) may inhibit colon cancer through the regulation of proteins involved in cell proliferation, metastasis, apoptosis, cytoskeletal structure, metabolism, and signal transduction. PMID: 22647848
  11. NGX6 could inhibit the expression of Wnt signaling downstream target genes in colon cancer. PMID: 21464545
  12. The short transcript of NGX6 play an important role in colorectal cancer, and reduced expression may contribute to metastasis. PMID: 20543461
  13. NGX6 plays an important role in regulation of apoptosis, mobility/migration, and hydrolase as well as activity of JNK and Notch pathways through NGX6-mediated miRNA expression PMID: 20859756
  14. Data show that NGX6 could suppress the translocation of beta-catenin from nucleus and cytoplasm to plasma membrane, inhibit the activity of TCF4 transcript factor, and down-regulate the expression of Wnt-direct-targeted genes. PMID: 20705583
  15. Down-regulation of NGX6 gene is related to the promoter methylation. DNA methylation of NGX6 promoter might be a potential molecular marker for diagnosis or prognosis, or serve as a therapeutic target in colorectal cancer. PMID: 20423473
  16. NGX6a was significantly downregulated in nasopharyngeal caaarcinoma and is associated with tumor metastasis. PMID: 19755717
  17. down-regulation may be closely associated with tumorigenesis and metastasis of colorectal carcinoma; may not contribute to development and progression of gastric carcinoma. PMID: 12918109
  18. NGX6 plays a role in cell adhesion modulation in NPC cells. PMID: 15498789
  19. We demonstrated the subcellular localization and the effect of NGX6 and its mutants on the growth, proliferation, migration, or adhesion of nasopharyngeal carcinoma 5-8F cells. PMID: 17641538
  20. propose that NGX6 expression is lost in the process of human colorectal carcinogenesis. Its overexpression can inhibit expression of transcription factors AP-1 and Ets-1, and down-regulate transcriptional activity of the cyclin D1 promoter in human CRC PMID: 19499154
