Recombinant Human Activin A(311-426 aa) fused with His tag was expressed in E. coli.
Inhibins are dimeric peptide hormones produced by female ovarian granulose cells and male Sertoli cells as well as a variety of other tissues. Inhibins have two isoforms, A and B, with the same alpha subunit but different beta subunits. Inhibin A is a dimer of alpha and beta A subunits, inhibin B is a dimer of alpha and beta B subunits.Inhibins are thought to inhibit the production of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) by the pituitary gland. In addition, Inhibins are also thought to play a role in the control of gametogenesis, and embryonic and fetal development.
Activin-A is supplied in 20mM Tris-HCl, 1mM EDTA and 50% glycerol.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
