CXADR (coxsackie virus and adenovirus receptor), also known as CAR, is a type I transmembrane glycoprotein belonging to the CTX family of the Ig superfamily, and is essential for normal cardiac development in the mouse. Proposed as a homophilic cell adhesion molecule, CXADR is a component of the epithelial apical junction complex that is essential for the tight junction integrity, and probably involved in transepithelial migration of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN). Mature mouse CXADR structrually comprises a 218 aa extracellular domain (ECD) with a V-type (D1) and a C2-type (D2) Ig-like domain, a 21 aa transmembrane segment and a 107 aa intracellular domain, among which,D1 is thought to be responsible for homodimer formation in trans within tight junctions. The ECD of mouse CXADR shares 97%, 90% sequence identity with the corresponding regions of rat, human CXADR.
Recombinant Mouse CXADR/CAR Protein (His Tag)(Active)
Measured by the ability of the immobilized protein to support the adhesion of mouse neutrophils. When 5 x 10E4 cells/well are added to CXADR-coated plates (4 μg/ml and 100 μl/well), approximately 20%-40% will adhere specifically after 60 minutes at 37℃.
A DNA sequence encoding the mouse CXADR (NP_001020363.1) extracellular domain (Met 1-Gly 237) was fused with a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.

|Stability and Storage||
Generally, lyophilized proteins are stable for up to 12 months when stored at -20 to -80℃. Reconstituted protein solution can be stored at 4-8℃ for 2-7 days. Aliquots of reconstituted samples are stable at < -20℃ for 3 months.
