Wnt-1, formerly known as int-1, is a non-glycosylated secreted protein associated with the extracellular matrix, involved in normal embryonic development and particularly linked with breast cancer.

Wnt-1, which signals through binding to the Frizzled family of transmembrane receptors, was originally identified as a proto-oncogene implicated in carcinomas induced by the mouse mammary tumour virus (MMTV). Wnt-1 belongs to a family of Wnt genes involved in the dorso-ventricular development of the mesoderm during embryogenesis, with a restricted temporal and spatial pattern of expression.

Product Details

Target Species
Human
Product Form
Purified recombinant protein - lyophilised
Reconstitution
Reconstitute with 100ul distilled water.
Care should be taken during reconstitution as the protein may appear as a film at the bottom of the vial. Bio-Rad recommend that the vial is gently mixed after reconstitution.
Preparation
Purified recombinant Wnt-1 expressed in E.coli.
Preservative Stabilisers
None present
Activity
The ED50 was determined by its ability to enhance BMP-2 induced alkaline phosphatase production by murine ATDC5 cells. The expected ED50 for this effect is 1.5 - 2.5 ng/ml in the presence of 200 ng/ml of human BMP-2.
Purity
>98% by SDS PAGE and HPLC analysis.
Approx. Protein Concentrations
0.1mg/ml
Molecular Weight
38.4kD (343 amino acid residues).
Endotoxin Level
<1EU/ug

Storage Information

Storage
Prior to reconstitution store at +4oC.
After reconstitution store at -20oC.
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended. This product should be stored undiluted. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
Shelf Life
3 months from date of reconstitution.
