Mouse PLAUR/CD87 (His Tag) recombinant protein
Urokinase plasminogen activator (uPA) and/or its receptor (uPAR) are essential for metastasis, and overexpression of these molecules is strongly correlated with poor prognosis in a variety of malignant tumours. uPAR and uPA levels in both resected tumor tissue and plasma are of independent prognostic significance for patient survival in several types of human cancer. This system has classically been thought to drive tumor progression by mediating directed extracellular proteolysis on the surface of migrating or invading cells, and intervening with this proteolysis by targeting uPAR has been proposed to represent a novel approach for inhibiting tumor progression. uPAR, also known as PLAUR or CD87, has been implicated in the growth, metastasis, and angiogenesis of several solid and hemotologic malignancies. uPAR is a highly glycosylated, 55-60kDa integral membrane protein linked to the plasma membrane by a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor. It is part of a cell surface system that also consists of the serine protease uPA and several specific inhibitors (plasminogen activator inhibitors 1 and 2). Additionally, the analysis of CD87 (urokinase-type plasminogen activator receptor - uPAR) expression has a potential role in the diagnostic or prognostic work-up of several hematological malignancies, particularly acute leukemia and multiple myeloma.

Protein short names
CD87; URKR; PLAUR; U-PAR; UPAR
A DNA sequence encoding the extracellular domain of mouse PLAUR (NP_035243.1) precursor (Met 1-Thr 297) was expressed, fused with a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.
The recombinant mouse PLAUR comprises 285 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 31.4 kDa. In SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions, the apparent molecular mass of rmPLAUR is approximately 50-60 kDa due to glycosylation.
> 97 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Measured by its ability to bind with uPA-His (Cat:503537) in a functional ELISA.
