Recombinant Human Calcitonin-related polypeptide alpha

Cat. No. : CALCA-317H
Product Overview : Procalcitonin Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 116 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 12.7 kDa. The Procalcitonin is purified by standard chromatographic techniques.
Description : Procalcitonin is a peptide hormone mainly produced by the C cells of the thyroid and certain endocrine cells of the lung. Under normal expression conditions, procalcitonin is immediately cleaved into three specific fragments, an N terminal residue, calcitonin and katacalcin. Levels of unprocessed procalcitonin rise significantly after bacterial infection, trauma or shock.
Source : Human
Host : Escherichia Coli.
Form : Lyophilized from 10mM sodium phosphate pH-7.5.
Purity : Greater than 97.0% as determined by(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC. (b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
Bio-activity : Human Procalcitonin was tested using Biomerieux reagents on the Min-Vidas. The assay was run at 80 ng/ml with a recovery of 82 percent.
Physical Appearance : Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Solubility : It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized procalcitonin sterile 18Mμ-cm H2O at 100 µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Storage : Lyophilized procalcitonin although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution procalcitonin should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
