Human ADAM8, His Tag (AD8-H5223) is expressed from human 293 cells (HEK293). It contains AA Ile 17 - Pro 497 (Accession # AAI15405.1).
Predicted N-terminus: Ile 17
Human ADAM8, His Tag fused with a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus, has a calculated MW of 53.8 kDa, which migrates as a 180-220 kDa band in DTT-reduced SDS-PAGE due to glycosylation. Two main fragments bands are visible with apparent MW of 69-73 kDa and 46-48 kDa respectively in reduced SDS-PAGE as a result of its being prone to proteolytic cleavage.
Less than 1.0 EU per μg by the LAL method.
>85% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Lyophilized from 0.22 μm filtered solution in 50 mM Tris, 150 mM NaCl, pH7.5. Normally trehalose is added as protectant before lyophilization.

Disintegrin and metalloproteinase domain-containing protein 8 is also known as ADAM8, Cell surface antigen MS2 and CD antigen CD156a, which belongs to the ADAM (a disintegrin and metalloprotease domain) family. ADAM family play a fundamental role in diverse processes such as asthma, development, angiogenesis and cancer through their activities in cell adhesion/fusion, membrane protein shedding, and signal transduction. ADAM8 / CD156a contains 1 disintegrin domain, 1 EGF-like domain and 1 peptidase M12B domain. ADAM8 / MS2 / CD156a is expressed on neutrophils and monocytes. ADAM8 / MS2 possible involvement in extravasation of leukocytes.
