Calreticulin Overexpression Lysate Summary


Calreticulin Transient Overexpression Lysate

Expression Host: HEK293T

Plasmid: RC203222

Accession#: NM_004343

Protein Tag: C-MYC/DDK

You will receive 1 vial of lysate (100ug), 1 vial of empty vector negative control (100ug), and 1 vial of 2xSDS sample buffer (250ul). Each vial of cell lysate contains 100ug of total protein (at 1 mg/ml). The 2xSDS Sample Buffer consists of 4% SDS, 125mM Tris-HCl pH6.8, 10% Glycerol, 0.002% Bromophenol blue, 100mM DTT.


  • Western Blot
Application Notes
This product is intended for use as a positive control in Western Blot.

Each vial of cell lysate contains 100ug of total protein which should be sufficient for 20-50 reactions. Depending on over-expression level, antibody affinity and detection system, some lysates can go as low as 0.1 ug per load. We recommend starting with 5ug of cell lysate. Add an equal amount of cell lysate and 2X SDS Sample buffer and boil the SDS samples for 10 minutes before loading.
Theoretical MW
46.4 kDa.
Disclaimer note: The observed molecular weight of the protein may vary from the listed predicted molecular weight due to post translational modifications, post translation cleavages, relative charges, and other experimental factors.

Packaging, Storage & Formulations

Store at -80C. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.

Lysate Details for Array



HEK293T cells in 10-cm dishes were transiently transfected with a non-lipid polymer transfection reagent specially designed and manufactured for large volume DNA transfection. Transfected cells were cultured for 48hrs before collection. The cells were lysed in modified RIPA buffer (25mM Tris-HCl pH7.6, 150mM NaCl, 1% NP-40, 1mM EDTA, 1xProteinase inhibitor cocktail mix, 1mM PMSF and 1mM Na3VO4, and then centrifuged to clarify the lysate. Protein concentration was measured by BCA protein assay kit.This product is manufactured by and sold under license from OriGene Technologies and its use is limited solely for research purposes.

Calreticulin, also called CALR, is an endoplasmic reticulum (ER) protein that functions as a calcium (Ca2+) buffering molecular chaperone (1-3). Together with calnexin and ERp57, calreticulin has a critical role in protein folding and quality control of newly synthesized glycoproteins (1-3). Calreticulin has many diverse functions beyond Ca2+ binding, including cell adhesion, lectin binding, apoptosis, nuclear transport, antigen presentation, and immune response (1-3). Specifically, calreticulin is part of the peptide-loading complex that resides on the ER membrane and is responsible for antigen loading onto MHC class I molecules (1-3). Calreticulin protein has a theoretical molecular weight of 46 kDa and is 417 amino acids (aa) in length (1-3). The protein has three main domains: the N-terminal lectin-like domain, the proline-rich P-domain, and the acidic C-domain which is followed by an ER-retention KDEL signal sequence (1-3).

Given its role in multiple biological processes, it makes sense that calreticulin is implicated in both healthy and disease states. Studies have found that calreticulin mutations were present in patients with myeloproliferative neoplasms (MFN) and essential thrombocythaemia (ET) (4). Calreticulin expression is typically upregulated in most cancer lines, however it is downregulated in some tissues including cervical carcinomas, prostate cancer, and human colon adenocarcinoma (3). High expression of calreticulin on cancer cells is related to tumor cell phagocytosis and is often correlated with, and counteracted by, elevated CD47 expression to prevent cancer cell phagocytosis (3). Calreticulin mutations can serve as a major diagnostic biomarker for MFN and ET and additionally the calreticulin gene may be a potential target for cancer therapeutics (3,4).
