Human Contactin-2, His Tag (CN2-H5226) is expressed from human 293 cells (HEK293). It contains AA Ser 31 - Asn 1012 (Accession # NP_005067.1).
Predicted N-terminus: Ser 31
This protein carries a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.
The protein has a calculated MW of 108.3 kDa. The protein migrates as 116-130 kDa under reducing (R) condition (SDS-PAGE) due to glycosylation.
Less than 1.0 EU per μg by the LAL method.
>95% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Lyophilized from 0.22 μm filtered solution in PBS, pH7.4. Normally trehalose is added as protectant before lyophilization.

Contactin-2 is also known as CNTN2, TAX1 (transiently-expressed axonal glycoprotein), TAG1 (transient axonal glycoprotein), and axonin-1, and is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily. CNTN2 consists of six Ig-like domains and four fibronectin type III domains, and is anchored to the membrane by glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI), whereas the soluble form can be released by a GPI-specific phospholipase. As a neural cell adhesion molecule expressed by a subset of neuronal populations in the developing CNS and PNS, CNTN2 mediates cell-cell interactions either via homophilic, or heterophilic contacts with various adhesion molecules including NgCAM, NrCAM, NCAM and neurocan. It is a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchored neuronal membrane protein that functions as a cell adhesion molecule. It may play a role in the formation of axon connections in the developing nervous system. It may also be involved in glial tumorigenesis and may provide a potential target for therapeutic intervention.
