Human R-spondin 1 (RSPO-1) protein is a secreted activator of the canonical Wnt signaling pathway. A ligand for the leucine-rich repeat-containing G-protein coupled receptors (LGR) 4-61 , recombinant R-spondin 1 protein is used extensively in adult stem cell-derived organoid culture, intestinal organoid culture, hematopoietic stem cell specification and other iPSC and culture systems1–5.
Qk006 recombinant human R-spondin 1 protein is a highly pure biologically active fragment comprising two cysteine-rich, furin-like domains – the essential domains for activity in stem cell culture. Our E. coli-produced recombinant R-spondin 1 protein is not glycosylated, which ensures reliable production of homogeneous protein and enhanced comparability between batches. The glycosylation of R-spondin 1 protein is not necessary for extracellular signalling and stability 6.
