Human FAP (GenBank Accession No. NM_004460), (aa29-end) with C-terminal His tag, expressed in a Baculovirus infected Sf9 cell expression system.
Catalog #F4208-50H
Fibroblast Activation Protein (FAP) is a cell surface glycoprotein of reactive human fibroblasts. Among the normal adult organs tested, F4208-50H does not show immunoreactivity in immunohistological studies with either resting fibroblasts (fibrocytes) of the normal origin mesenchyme or the parenchymal cells. The single exception noted is a subset of endocrine cells in the pancreatic islets, presumably glucagon-producing A cells.
Specific Activity~10pmol/min/ug
Assay Buffer50mM Tris pH 7.5, 10mM MgCl2, 1mM MnCl2, 20uM substrate (A-P-AMC)
Assay conditionsIncubate 10 minutes at RT.
ApplicationsSuitable for use in the study of enzyme kinetics, screening inhibitors and selectivity profiling. Other applications have not been tested.
