ICOS Protein, Human, Recombinant (His & hFc Tag): Product Information

Purity
> 90 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Endotoxin
< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method
Activity
Measured by its binding ability in a functional ELISA
. Immobilized human human B7-H2 at 1 μg/ml (100 μl/well) can bind human ICOS with a linear range of 1.6-200 ng/ml.
Protein Construction
A DNA sequence encoding the extracellular domain of human ICOS (NP_036224.1) (Met 1-Phe 141) was fused to the C-terminal polyhistidine-tagged Fc region of human IgG1 at the C-terminus.
Accession#
Expressed Host
HEK293 Cells
Species
Human
Predicted N Terminal
Glu 21
Molecule Mass
The recombinant human ICOS/Fc is a disulfide-linked homodimeric protein. The reduced monomer consists of 368 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 41.6 kDa. The apparent molecular mass of rhICOS/Fc monomer is approximately 50 kDa due to glycosylation.
Formulation
Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4
Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose, mannitol and 0.01% Tween80 are added as protectants before lyophilization.
Please refer to the specific buffer information in the hard copy of CoA.
Shipping
In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature.
Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
Stability & Storage
Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -20℃ to -80℃
Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Reconstitution
A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.

ICOS Background Information

Inducible costimulator (ICOS), also called AILIM (activiation-inducible lymphocyte immunomediatory molecule) is a cell-surface receptor, and belongs to the CD28 family of immune costimulatory receptors consisting of CD28, CTLA-4 and PD-1. The interaction of B7-H2/ICOS plays a critical role in Th cell differentiation, T−B cell interactions which is essential for germinal center formation, and humoral immune responses, and as well as the production of cytokine IL-4. In addition, ICOS is more potent in the induction of IL-1 production, a cytokine important for suppressive function of T regulatory cells. The B7-1/B7-2--CD28/CTLA-4 and ICOS-B7RP-1 pathway provides key second signals that can regulate the activation, inhibition and fine-tuning of T-lymphocyte responses. ICOS stimulates both Th1 and Th2 cytokine production but may have a preferential role in Th2 cell development. Moreover, The B7-1/B7-2-CD28/CTLA-4 and ICOS-B7RP-1 pathway has been suggested of being involved in the development of airway inflammation and airway hyperresponsiveness.
