Optimized DNA sequence encoding extracellular domain of human CD66a including a C-terminal 6His tag was expressed in HEK293 cells.
Recombinant human CD66a is a monomer protein consisting of 405 amino acid residue subunits, due to glycosylation migrates as an approximately 65-85 kDa protein on SDS-PAGE.
>95%, as determined by SDS-PAGE and HPLC
The activity was tested by immobilized recombinant CD66a (10ug/ml) ability to bind recombinant human CD66b in functional ELISA.
Endotoxin content was assayed using a LAL gel clot method.
Endotoxin level was found to be less than 0.1 ng/µg(1EU/µg).
Recombinant CD66a is supplied as a 0.2 μm filtered PBS solution, pH7.2 .
Recombinant CD66a, as supplied, can be stored in working aliquots at 2° - 8° C for one month, or at -20°C to -70°C for twelve months.
Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.

unclear. However, CD66a is
phosphorylated on its
cytoplasmic domain, largely
on tyrosine with a lower
level of phosphoserine, in
neutrophils and colon cancer
cells. While at least eight
isoforms of CD66a derived
from differential splicing
have been described, only
those isoforms with a long
cytoplasmic tail can be
phosphorylated on tyrosine.
In addition, associated
protein tyrosine kinase and
phosphatase activities may
be involved in CD66a
