Form

Lyophilized, ready-to-use.

Quantity per unit

2x50µg

Buffer

150mM NaCl, 20mM Hepes pH 7.4, 1mM DTT and 5% sucrose, when reconstituted with 50 µl ultrapure water to obtain a 1.0 mg/ml solution.

Purity & Activity


Purity: >99% by scanning densitometry from Coomassie G-250 stained SDS-Gels.

Bundling activity: 2µM Atto565-Actin (Cat.#:8162-01) was incubated with Fascin at a molar ratio of 1:10 and 1:4.1 to verify bundling by fluorecence microscopy. All proteins were used as supplied, i.e. without dialysis. The actin stock solution was pre-spun 15min, 15.000xg, 4°C.

 


Low speed cosedimentation assay was performed (20,000xg, 30min) with rabbit skeletal muscle actin (Cat.#:8101-03) in the presence of sugars. At a molar ratio of 4. : 1 (actin : fascin), fascin was mixed with F-actin. After 30min at RT, the samples were used for low speed spinning. SDS-PAGE showed, that fascin was completely pelleted with F-actin.

Purification notes

Fascin protein was amplified from human macrophage cDNA and expressed as a GST-tag fusion protein in E. coli. After purification by GST-Agarose and subsequent GST-tag cleavage, the pure protein was yielded by gel filtration chromatography. 

Protein concentration

Determined by OD280 (0.1%=1.224).

Storage instructions

Fascin is stored at –70°C upon arrival will be stable in performance for at least 6 months from the date of purchase. The solubilized protein is kept on ice and should be stored at -20°C in glycerol or CryoProtect (Cat.#: 6011-01). Avoid repeated freeze / thaw cycles. 

Shipping conditions 

At ambient temperature. Upon delivery store at -70°C.

Remarks

 

CAS no.
