The WIF1 protein solution contains 1X PBS pH 7.4, 10% glycerol and 1mM PMSF.
Greater than 80.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
WIF1 produced in Hi-5 cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 369 amino acids (29-379 a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 40.5 kDa, (48kDa on SDS-PAGE). WIF1 is fused to 16 amino acid His Tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
WIF1 binds to wnt proteins and inhibits their activities. WIF1 plays a role in mesoderm segmentation. WNT proteins are extracellular signaling molecules that take part in the control of embryonic development & cancer. WIF1 protein contains a WNT inhibitory factor (WIF) domain and 5 epidermal growth factor (EGF)-like domains. WIF1 takes part in mesoderm segmentation. WIF1 protein is found to be present in fish, amphibia and mammals. WIF1 is a recurrent target in human salivary gland oncogenesis. Downregulation of WIF1 takes part in the development and progression of pleomorphic adenomas. WIF1 is a tumor suppressor, specifically in nonfunctioning pituitary tumors.
