Background
Fractalkine is also known as C-X3-C motif chemokine 1 (CX3CL1) and neurotactin. Fractalkine is a large cytokine protein of 373 amino acids, it contains multiple domains and is the only known member of the CX3C chemokine family. Fractalkine is found commonly throughout the brain, particularly in neural cells, and its receptor is known to be present on microglial cells. It has also been found to be essential for microglial cell migration. CX3CL1 is also up-regulated in the hippocampus during a brief temporal window following spatial learning, the purpose of which may be to regulate glutamate-mediated neurotransmission tone. This indicates a possible role for the chemokine in the protective plasticity process of synaptic scaling.

Recombinant Human CX3CL1 / Fractalkine Protein, Gln 25 - Gln 341 (Accession # AAH01163) was produced in human 293 cells (HEK293)

Molecular Characterization
This protein carries a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.
The protein has a calculated MW of 35.5 kDa. The protein migrates as 45-100 kDa under reducing (R) condition (SDS-PAGE) due to glycosylation.

Endotoxin
Less than 1.0 EU per μg by the LAL method.

Purity
>95% as determined by SDS-PAGE.

Formulation
Lyophilized from 0.22 μm filtered solution in PBS, pH7.4. Normally Trehalose is added as protectant before lyophilization.

Reconstitution
See Certificate of Analysis for reconstitution instructions and specific concentrations.

Storage
Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
No activity loss was observed after storage at:
In lyophilized state for 1 year (4°C); After reconstitution under sterile conditions for 3 months (-70°C).
