||Native human OXT is synthetic.
||HumanOXT (Pitocin/Syntocinon) stimulates uterine smooth muscle contractions indirectlyand stimulates the mammary glands to increase lactation without increasingthe production of milk.
||Lyophilized from aconcentrated (1 mg/ml) solution in water containing no additives.
||Sterile FilteredWhite lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
||Greater than 98.0%as determined by: Analysis by RP-HPLC and Mass Spectral Analysis (MALDI-TOFexhibits correct MW).
||Lyophilized Oxytocinalthough stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccatedbelow -18°C. Upon reconstitution Oxytocin should be stored at 4°C between 2-7days and for future use below -18°C. For long term storage it is recommendedto add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
