CHO expressed human STING (R232) protein
STING (stimulator of interferon genes; also known as TMEM173, MITA, MPYS, and ERIS) is essential for the interferon response to microbial or self-DNA, and acts as a direct sensor of cyclic dinucleotides (CDNs). CDNs are important messengers in bacteria, affecting numerous responses of the prokaryotic cell, but also in mammalian cells, acting as agonists of the innate immune response.
STING senses the presence of CDNs in the cytoplasm through its soluble CDN-binding domain . Several non‑synonymous variants of STING have been described in the human population. The prevalent human STING isoform (~60% of the human population) contains an arginine at position 232 (R232) and is thus considered as wild‑type [2,3]. Recombinant human STING corresponds to the cytoplasmic domain of the R232 variant. This protein is produced in Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells transfected with a DNA sequence encoding a polypeptide chain containing the soluble CDN-binding domain. Recombinant human STING was purified by affinity chromatography.
