Glycoprotein G,G,mG,Attachment glycoprotein G,Membrane-bound glycoprotein
HRSV (A) Glycoprotein G, His Tag (RSG-V5221) is expressed from human 293 cells (HEK293). It contains AA His 67 - Arg 297 (Accession # P20895).
Predicted N-terminus: His 67
This protein carries a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.
The protein has a calculated MW of 27.0 kDa. The protein migrates as 46-90 kDa under reducing (R) condition (SDS-PAGE) due to glycosylation.
Less than 1.0 EU per μg by the LAL method.
>90% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Lyophilized from 0.22 μm filtered solution in PBS, pH7.4. Normally trehalose is added as protectant before lyophilization.

Human respiratory syncytial virus (HRSV) is the most common etiological agent of acute lower respiratory tract disease in infants and can cause repeated infections throughout life. Human respiratory syncytial virus A (strain Long) major surface glycoprotein G (RSV-G), a member of the pneumoviruses glycoprotein G family, is also known as attachment glycoprotein G and membrane-bound glycoprotein (mG), which contains a linear heparin binding domain essential for virus attachment to the host. Concretely speaking, RSV-G can attache the virion to the host cell membrane by interacting with heparan sulfate, initiating the infection. Furthermore, RSV-G can also interact with host CX3CR1, the receptor for the CX3C chemokine fractalkine, to modulate the immune response and facilitate infection. Unlike the other paramyxovirus attachment proteins, RSV-G lacks both neuraminidase and hemagglutinating activities.
