5'-Nucleotidase, Ecto (NT5E), also known as ecto-5'-nucleotidase or CD73, is an enzyme catalyzing thehydrolysis of nucleoside-5’-monophosphates to nucleosides and inorganic phosphate. The enzyme is a dimer composed of 2 identical 70kD subunits bound by a glycosyl phosphatidyl inositol linkage to the external face of the plasma membrane. NT5E is a marker of lymphocyte differentiation that has functions independent of its catalytic activity, such as T-cell activation and cell-cell adhesion. Other forms of 5-prime nucleotidase exist in the cytoplasm and lysosomes and can be distinguished from NT5E by their substrate affinities, requirement for divalent magnesium ion, activation by ATP, and inhibition by inorganic phosphate. The enzyme is widely distributed in human and animal tissues. Besides, AF4/FMR2 Family, Member 1 (AFF1) has been identified as an interactor of NT5E thus a binding ELISA assay was conducted to detect the interaction of recombinant human NT5E and recombinant human AFF1. Briefly, NT5E were diluted serially in PBS, with 0.01% BSA (pH 7.4). Duplicate samples of 100 μl were then transferred to AFF1-coated microtiter wells and incubated for 2h at 37ºC. Wells were washed with PBST and incubated for 1h with anti-NT5E pAb, then aspirated and washed 3 times. After incubation with HRP labelled secondary antibody, wells were aspirated and washed 3 times. With the addition of substrate solution, wells were incubated 15-25 minutes at 37ºC. Finally, add 50 μl stop solution to the wells and read at 450nm immediately. The binding activity of of NT5E and AFF1 was in a dose dependent manner.
Lyophilized from 20 mM Tris (pH 8.0) with 150 mM NaCl, 1 mM EDTA, 1 mM DTT, 0.01% SKL, 5% Trehalose, Proclin300. Reconstitute with 20 mM Tris and 150 mM NaCl (pH 8.0) to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. Do not vortex.
For short-term storage (1-2 weeks), store at 4ºC. For long-term storage, store at -20ºC or below. After reconstitution, keep as concentrated solution.Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.

The protein encoded by this gene is a plasma membrane protein that catalyzes the conversion of extracellular nucleotides to membrane-permeable nucleosides. The encoded protein is used as a determinant of lymphocyte differentiation. Defects in this gene can lead to the calcification of joints and arteries. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Mar 2011]
