FcRn,FCGRT & B2M
Biotinylated Feline FCGRT&B2M Heterodimer Protein, His,Avitag (SPR verified) (FCN-F82W3) is expressed from human 293 cells (HEK293). It contains AA Ala 24 - Ser 297 (FCGRT) & Val 21 - Met 118 (B2M) (Accession # W5VRL5-1 (FCGRT) & Q5MGS7-1 (B2M)).
Predicted N-terminus: Ala 24 (FCGRT) & Val 21 (B2M)
Biotinylated Feline FCGRT&B2M Heterodimer Protein, His,Avitag (SPR verified), produced by co-expression of FCGRT and B2M, has a calculated MW of 34.0 kDa (FCGRT) and 11.5 kDa (B2M). Subunit FCGRT is fused with a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus, followed by an Avi tag (Avitag™) and subunit Beta-2 microglobulin (B2M) contains no tag. The reducing (R) protein migrates as 36-40 kDa (FCGRT) and 18-20 kDa (B2M) respectively due to glycosylation.
Biotinylation of this product is performed using Avitag™ technology. Briefly, the single lysine residue in the Avitag is enzymatically labeled with biotin.
The biotin to protein ratio is 0.5-1 as determined by the HABA assay.
Less than 1.0 EU per μg by the LAL method.
>90% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Lyophilized from 0.22 μm filtered solution in PBS, pH7.4. Normally trehalose is added as protectant before lyophilization.

Biotinylated Feline FCGRT&B2M Heterodimer Protein, His,Avitag (SPR verified) (Cat. No. FCN-F82W3) captured on Biotin CAP-Series S Sensor Chip can bind Herceptin® with an affinity constant of 1.19 nM as determined in a SPR assay (Biacore T200) (QC tested).
FCGRT & B2M heterodimer protein (FcRn complex) consist of two subunits: p51 (equivalent to FCGRT), and p14 (equivalent to beta-2-microglobulin), and forms an MHC class I-like heterodimer. Fc fragment of IgG, receptor, transporter, alpha (FCGRT) binds to the Fc region of monomeric immunoglobulins gamma and mediates the uptake of IgG from milk. FCGRT possible role in transfer of immunoglobulin G from mother to fetus. Beta-2-microglobulin (B2M) is a component of the class I major histocompatibility complex (MHC) and involved in the presentation of peptide antigens to the immune system.
