Recombinant Human Insulin-Like Growth Factor 1 (somatomedin C), HQ-tagged

Cat. No. : IGF1-691H
Product Overview : Recombinant humanIGF1 contains 70 amino acids and a 13 amino acid Histidine-based tag. It hasa predicted molecular mass of 9.3 kDa and migrates with an apparent molecularmass of 12 kDa in SDS-PAGE.
Description : IGF-1 also known assomatomedin C is a protein that in humans is encoded by the IGF1 gene. IGF-1has also been referred to as a "sulfation factor" and its effects weretermed "nonsuppressible insulin-like activity" (NSILA) in the1970s. IGF-1 is a hormone similar in molecular structure to insulin. It playsan important role in childhood growth and continues to have anabolic effectsin adults. A synthetic analog of IGF-1, mecasermin is used for the treatmentof growth failure.
Source : Hordeum vulgare(barley grain)
Species : Human
Form : Lyophilized from a0.2 um sterile filtered solution in 50 mM MES, pH 6.5+100 mM NaCI.
Molecular Weight : 12 kDa
Purity : >98% as determinedby SDS-PAGE analysis. Purified product carries no pyrogenic orpro-inflammatory contaminants, as assayed with monocyte activation test usingHuman 10-plex Cytokine Assay measuring IL-6, TNF-alpha and IL-1 betainduction.
Endotoxin Level : <0.005 ng/ug of IGF1
Biological Activity : Bioactivity isassayed by measuring the dose dependent effect of human IGF1 on proliferationof FDC-P1 cells, mouse progenitor cells of granulocytes, monocytes andmacrophages. The ED50 for this effect is 10.0 ng/ml.
Specific Activity : 1x105U/mg
Reconstitution : Centrifuge vialprior to opening. Add sterile distilled water to the vial to fully solubilizethe protein to a concentration not less than 100 ug/ml.
Storage : Store lyophilizedprotein at -20°C and reconstituted protein in working aliquots at -20°C witha carrier protein (0.1%HSA or BSA) as a stabilizer for long term storage.Please note that the addition of any carrier protein into this product mayproduce unwanted endotoxin. This depends upon the particular application employed.Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
