for THP-1 nuclear extractBackground

THP-1 nuclear extract was prepared from a cell culture of the human acute monocytic leukemia THP-1 cell line. The THP-1 cell line was originally derived from the peripheral blood of a 1 year old boy with acute monocytic leukemia. THP-1 cells share similar properties to human monocyte-derived macrophages. These cells differentiate into mature macrophages (phagocytes) when grown in the presence of DMSO or phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (TPA or PMA). When stimulated with DMSO or vitamin D3, THP-1 cells adhere to the walls of cell culture flasks, and are therefore frequently utilized as in vitro model systems to study foam cell formation in relation to atherosclerosis. The THP-1 cell line is characterized by the expression of Fc and C3b receptors, the production of IL-1, and the lack of expression of cytoplasmic and surface immunoglobulins. In addition, these cells are phagocytic, produce lysosymes and stain positive for alpha-napthyl butyrate esterase. Because of these properties, they are often used in research to study monocyte differentiation.

for THP-1 nuclear extractApplication Notes

for THP-1 nuclear extractExtract Composition

THP-1 nuclear extract is supplied in Dilution Buffer (20 mM Hepes (pH 7.9), 100 mM KCl, 1 mM MgCl2, 20% glycerol, 0.5 mM PMSF and 0.5 mM DTT).

for THP-1 nuclear extractQuality Control

Extracts have been quality control tested by Western blot and TransAM® Transcription Factor ELISAs.

for THP-1 nuclear extractStorage

To ensure stability, extracts should be stored at -80°C.

We recommend aliquoting the extracts into single-use fractions and then storing them at -80°C. This eliminates repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
