Human Fibronectin III 1H N-GST

This recombinant FN fragment corresponds to the C-terminal heparin-binding fragment of FN type-III 1H (amino acids I597-T673).

Fibronectins (FN) are a family of high molecular weight, multidomain glycoproteins composed of two structurally similar subunits which are joined at the carboxyl terminus by disulfide bonds. The primary structure of FN is organized into three types of repeating homologous units, termed types I, II, and III. These modules in turn are organized into functional domains which have been shown to contain multiple binding sites, including those for sulfated glycosaminoglycans, gelatin, fibrin, and cell surface integrin receptors. Twelve type I modules are found grouped at the amino- and carboxyl-terminal regions, and two type II modules are located within the gelatin-binding region. Fifteen to seventeen type III modules are contained within the middle of the molecule and comprise 60% of fibronectin’s sequence.

C-terminal heparin-binding fragment of FNIII-1; vasoactive.

Recombinant Human Fibronectin III 1H (Left) Schematic representation of a fibronectin subunit and recombinant fibronectin fusion protein. FNIII1H is the heparin-binding, C-terminal fragment of FNIII1. In (Right), aliquots (5 ug) of recombinant protein was electrophoresed on a 10% SDS-polyacrylamide gel and stained with Coomassie Blue. Molecular mass markers are shown on left.
