Human PH20, His Tag (PH0-H5225) is expressed from human 293 cells (HEK293). It contains AA Leu 36 - Tyr 482 (Accession # P38567-1).
Predicted N-terminus: Leu 36
This protein carries a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.
The protein has a calculated MW of 53.0 kDa. The protein migrates as 60-66 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 50 mM Tris, 100 mM NaCl, pH7.5. Normally trehalose is added as protectant before lyophilization.

Human PH20, His Tag on SDS-PAGE under reducing (R) condition. The gel was stained overnight with Coomassie Blue. The purity of the protein is greater than 95%.
The activity of Human PH20, His Tag (Cat. No. PH0-H5225) is measured by its ability to hydrolyze HA in turbidimetric assay (45 minute assay). The specific activity is >60,000 U/mg. (Unit Definition: One unit of Hyaluronidase activity will cause a change in A600 of 0.330 per minute at pH5.35 at 37 °C in a 2.0 mL reaction mixture) (QC tested).
Hyaluronidase PH-20 is also known as Sperm adhesion molecule 1 (SPAM1) and Sperm surface protein PH-20, which belongs to the glycosyl hydrolase 56 family, SPAM1 / PH-20 is expressed in testis. SPAM-1 / PH20 random hydrolysis of (1->4)-linkages between N – acetyl – beta – D – glucosamine and D-glucuronate residues in hyaluronate. SPAM-1 / PH20 involved in sperm-egg adhesion. Upon fertilization sperm must first penetrate a layer of cumulus cells that surrounds the egg before reaching the zona pellucida. The cumulus cells are embedded in a matrix containing hyaluronic acid which is formed prior to ovulation. SPAM1 aids in penetrating the layer of cumulus cells by digesting hyaluronic acid.
