Technical Data
ADAM 12S, Recombinant, Human (A disintegrin and metalloproteinase domain 12S)
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
Recombinant ADAM12S comprises a 531 amino acid fragment (208-738) corresponding to the mature ADAM 12S protein isoform and is expressed in E. coli with an amino-terminal hexahistidine tag.

Their exact functions have not been fully characterized however, they are thought to mediate a number of cellular processes including differentiation, cell fusion, cell-cell interactions and shedding of plasma membrane bound growth factor precursors.

Suitable for use in ELISA. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add sterile glycerol (40-50%), aliquot and store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
Purity: Purified. 95% by SDS-PAGE.
Concentration: As reported
Form: Supplied as a liquid.
