|Protein per Gram Powder||See Label.|
|Concentration for 1 unity DO at 280 nm||4.48 mg/ml|
|Physical Appearance||Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.|
|Purity||> 97 % by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analyses.|
|Specificity||The recombinant Protein A is a genetically engineered protein containing 5 IgG-binding regions of protein A. Cell wall binding region, cell membrane binding region and albumin binding region have been removed from the recombinant Protein A to ensure the maximum specific IgG binding. The recombinant Protein A is ideal for purification of polyclonal or monoclonal IgG antibodies. Protein A binds to various human, mouse and rat IgG subclasses (e.g., human IgG1, IgG2, IgG4; mouse IgG2a, IgG2b, IgG3; rat IgG2c). It also binds to total IgG from rabbit, guinea pig, pig, dog and cat.|
|Endotoxin Level||Less than 0.1 EU/μg of Protein A as determined by LAL method.|
|Formulation||Lyophilized from additive free solution.|
|Stability & Storage||Use a manual defrost freezer and avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.

|Shipping||The product is shipped at ambient temperature. Upon receipt, store it immediately at -20 °C.|
|Background||Protein A is a cell wall component produced by several strains of Staphylococcus aureus that consists of a single polypeptide chain and contains little or no carbohydrate. Recombinant Protein A is produced in E.Coli and functions essentially the same as native Protein A. It consists of 5 IgG-binding domains E-D-A-B-C aligned in series.|
