Human pIgR, His Tag (PIR-H5222) is expressed from human 293 cells (HEK293). It contains AA Lys 19 - Arg 638 (Accession # AAI10495.1).
Predicted N-terminus: Lys 19
This protein carries a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.
The protein has a calculated MW of 68.7 kDa. The protein migrates as 85-95 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.

Polymeric immunoglobulin receptor (PIGR) is also known as Poly-Ig receptor, which can be cleaved into membrane secretory component (SC). PIGR is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein or a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily, and is synthesized by secretory epithelial cells and delivered to the basolateral plasma membrane where it can bind larger polymers of IgA (pIgA ) and pentameric IgM. The complex is then transported across the cell to be secreted at the apical surface. During this process a cleavage occurs that separates the extracellular (known as the secretory component) from the transmembrane segment.
