Recombinant Human sCD14
Catalog Number : 110-01
CD14 is a cell surface anchored glycoprotein that is expressed predominantly by monocytes and tissue macrophages. CD14 associates with MD-2 (LY-96) and TLR4 to form a receptor complex, which signals specifically in response to bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS) binding. The CD14/MD-2/TLR4 receptor complex signals via MyD88, TIRAP, and TRAF6, and ultimately activates NF-kappaB. CD14 also exists in a soluble form, designated as sCD14, which is capable of specifically binding LPS in the extracellular space. Recombinant sCD14 is a 331 amino acid glycoprotein comprising the extracellular portion of the CD14 receptor.
Above 95% as determined by SDS-PAGE Analysis.
Determined by the dose dependent activation of NF-kappaB in a RAW264 cell line based reporter system, using a sCD14 concentration range of 20 ng/μl to 200 ng/μl. The NF-kappaB activation is enhanced when the assay is done in the presence of 0.25 ng/
