Vaccinia Virus B18R Protein, His 20 - Glu 351 (Accession # P25213), was produced in human 293 cells (HEK293) at ACROBiosystems.
Predicted N-terminus: His 20
This protein carries a polyhistidine tag at the C-terminus.
The protein has a calculated MW of 40.3 kDa. The protein migrates as 50-60 kDa on a SDS-PAGE gel under reducing (R) condition due to glycosylation.
Less than 1.0 EU per μg by the LAL method.
>95% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Lyophilized from 0.22 μm filtered solution in PBS, pH7.4. Normally trehalose is added as protectant before lyophilization.

Vaccinia Virus B18R, His Tag on SDS-PAGE under reducing (R) condition. The gel was stained overnight with Coomassie Blue. The purity of the protein is greater than 95%.
Immobilized human IFN-α1a at 2μg/mL (100 µL/well),can bind Vaccinia Virus B18R, His Tag (Cat# B1R-H52H6) with a linear range of 0.8-10 ng/mL.
B18R is a type I interferon (IFN)-binding protein and it is encoded by the B18R open reading frame in the WR (Western Reserve) strain of vaccinia virus, which contains two Ig-like C2-type domains and one Ig-like V-type domain. B18R exists in a soluble and a membrane-bound form. As a type I IFN receptor, B18R counteracts the antiviral effects of host IFN-alpha/beta. Also, B18R acts as a soluble IFN-alpha receptor and thus inhibits the interaction between host IFN-alpha and its receptor.
