    PXR-LBD™ Cat. #SPX90
  Purified GST-tagged human Pregnane X receptor LBD/Hsp90 complex
 
  GST-tagged Pregnane X receptor ligand-binding domain (PXR-LBD) consists of a 218 a.a. GST tag (Schistosoma japonicum Glutathione S-Transferase, Acc# 1M99_A), a 14 a.a. flexible linker and a 233 a.a. PXR, NR1I2 ligand binding domain, Acc# AAH17304.2, amino acids 201-433 (details). It was produced in complex with human Hsp90 to facilitate native protein conformation and advanced performance in ligand binding and coactivator peptide recruitment assays. In the cytoplasm Pregnane X receptor is found in complexes with Hsp90 which suggests its involvement in the receptor function (Squires et al., J Biol Chem., 279(47):49307-14, 2004) (details).

Human Pregnane X receptor ligand-binding domain (PXR-LBD) in complex with human Hsp90 was produced in insect cells co-infected with two recombinant baculoviruses, i.e. BV-PXR-LBD™ which encodes GST-tagged human Pregnane X receptor ligand-binding domain and FoldHelper™-905c which provides for expression of Hsp40, Hsc70, Hsp90, Hop and p23 human molecular chaperones. Cells were cultivated in the absence of exogeneous ligands to ensure availability of the ligand-binding site. PXR-LBD/Hsp90 complex was purified from soluble cell fraction without the use of detergents, high-salt buffers or chaotropic agents and was formulated at about physiological conditions. GST tagged PXR-LBD, Hsp90 and Hsc70 are the major components of the complex (Fig. 1).

  receptor receptor LBDin complex with Hsp90.
  Proteins were separated in 4-20% SDS-PAGE and stained with
  Coomassie blue. Identity of PXR-LBD, Hsp90, Hsc70 and p23 was
  confirmed using mass-spectrorometry. Open the links above for
