MBL2 (Mannose-binding protein C) is a calcium-dependent lectin involved in innate immune defense, which binds mannose, fucose and N-acetylglucosamine on different microorganisms, therefore results in activation of the lectin pathway of the complement system. It has been proven that MASP-2 (Mannan-binding lectin serine protease 2) forms complexes with the pattern recognition molecules MBL2, triggers the activation of the complement system. Thus, a functional binding ELISA assay was constructed to detect the association of rhMBL2 with MASP2. Briefly, rhMBL2 were diluted serially in 10mM Tris-HCl, 1M NaCl, 5mM CaCl2, and 0.05% Triton X-100 (pH 7.4). Duplicate samples of 100 μl were then transferred to MASP2-coated microtiter wells and incubated for 2h at 37oC. Wells were washed with PBST and incubated for 1h with anti-MBL2 mAb, then aspirated and washed 3 times. After incubation with HRP labeled secondary antibody, wells were aspirated and washed 3 times. With the addition of substrate solution , wells were incubated for 15-25 minutes at 37oC. Finally, add 50 μl stop solution to the wells and read at 450nm immediately.
The binding activity of MBL2 with MASP2 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.

This gene encodes the soluble mannose-binding lectin or mannose-binding protein found in serum. The protein encoded belongs to the collectin family and is an important element in the innate immune system. The protein recognizes mannose and N-acetylglucosamine on many microorganisms, and is capable of activating the classical complement pathway. Deficiencies of this gene have been associated with susceptibility to autoimmune and infectious diseases. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
