ADA, also known as adenosine deaminase, catalyzes the hydrolytic deamination of adenosine and 2-deoxyadenosine. This protein plays an important role in purine metabolism and in adenosine homeostasis. ADA acts as a positive regulator of T-cell coactivation, by binding DPP4. Its interaction with DPP4 regulates lymphocyte-epithelial cell adhesion.

Source:
Recombinant corresponding to aa1-363 of human ADA, fused to His-tag at N-terminal, expressed in E. coli.

Molecular Weight:
42.9kD (383aa), confirmed by MALDI-TOF

Biological Activity:
Specific activity: approximately >25 units/mg. Enzymatic activity was confirmed by measuring the amount of enzyme that deaminates 1 umol of adenosine to inosine per minute at pH 7.5 at 25C.

Activity Assay:
1. Prerpare a 1.5ml reaction mix: the final concentrations are 53.3mM potassium phosphate, 0.045mM adenosine, 0.003% bovine serum.
2. Add recombinant ADA protein with various concentrations (0.1ug, 0.2) in assay buffer.
3. Mix by inversion and record A260nm for approximately 5 minutes.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for 6 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.
