Human Fetuin A, His Tag (FEA-H5221) is expressed from human 293 cells (HEK293). It contains AA Ala 19 - Val 367 (Accession # P02765-1).
Predicted N-terminus: Ala 19
This protein carries a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.
The protein has a calculated MW of 38.2 kDa. The protein migrates as 45-55 kDa under reducing (R) condition (SDS-PAGE) due to glycosylation.
Less than 1.0 EU per μg by the LAL method.
>98% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Lyophilized from 0.22 μm filtered solution in PBS, pH7.4. Normally trehalose is added as protectant before lyophilization.

Alpha-2-HS-glycoprotein (AHSG) is also known as Alpha-2-Z-globulin, Ba-alpha-2-glycoprotein, Fetuin-A (FETUA), is a glycoprotein that is composed of two subunits, the A and B chains, belongs to the cystatin family of proteases inhibitors and the fetuin class of plasma binding proteins. AHSG / Fetuin A is highly expressed in embryonic cells and adult hepatocytes, and is expressed to a lesser extent in monocytes/macrophages. Fetuins are carrier proteins like albumin. Fetuin-A / AHSG forms soluble complexes with calcium and phosphate and thus is a carrier of otherwise insoluble calcium phosphate. Thus AHSG / Fetuin A is a potent inhibitor of pathological calcification. Fetuin A / FETUA promotes phagocytosis of apoptotic cells and plays a role in bone development, calcium homeostasis and insulin sensitivity. Mice deficient in Fetuin-A show systemic calcification of soft tissues.
