Structural Info
FormulationLyophilized in sterile filtered solution of PBS.
ReconstitutionBefore reconstitution, a brief spin is recommend to drive down any material dislodged from the bottom of the tube. The lyophilized protein should be reconstituted in sterile H2O to a desired concentration.
StabilityThe lyophilized protein is stable for at least one year if stored at -80 °C. Reconstituted protein is stable for at least four weeks at 4 °C, but should be stored in aliquots at -80 °C for longer term. Avoid repeated freeze and thaw.
PurityGreater than 90% as determined by SDS-PAGE analysis
Biological ActivityThe activity was determined by using a TCF reporter gene assay in cultured human cells. The EC50 ranges from 2 - 10 ng/ml in the presence of 10 ng/mL human WNT-3a.
Country of OriginUSA

R Spondin-2 is a natural enhancer of the canonical WNT pathway. When used together with WNT proteins that activate the beta-catenin pathway, Rspondin-1 enhances the activity of canonical WNT proteins by binding to LGR5 and LGR4 (refs.)
