BoxB from HMGB1, human & mouse, with tag, LPS-free – 100ug

Recombinant protein used in research related to HMGB1 – a signal for tissue damage and regeneration.

SKU: REHM052 Category:


BoxB is one of the DNA binding domains of HMGB1 protein (HMG boxes).

Structure-function analysis revealed that the cytokine activity of HMGB1 can be reproduced by the recombinant BoxB. It recapitulates the cytokine activity of full length HMGB1 and efficiently activates macrophages to release tumor necrosis factor (TNF) and other proinflammatory cytokines (Li et al. Structural basis for the proinflammatory cytokine activity of high mobility group box 1. Mol Med 2004, 9:37-45). BoxB from HMGB1 is produced in E.coli (Müller et al. Thermodynamics of HMGB1 interaction with duplex DNA. Biochemistry 2001, 40: 10254-61) from an expression plasmid coding for the mammalian sequence, which is totally identical in human and mouse, preceded by four amino acids (MARI) that have been added for the purpose of expression in bacteria (Bianchi et al. The DNA binding site of HMG1 protein is composed of two similar segments (HMG boxes), both of which have counterparts in other eukaryotic regulatory proteins. EMBO J 1992, 11: 1055-63).
