Recombinant Mouse Ctf1

Cat.No.: Ctf1-658M
Product Overview: Recombinant Mouse Ctf1 produced in E. coli is approximately 18.2 kDa, a single non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 158 amino acids.
Description: Cardiotrophin-1 (CT-1) is a member of the cytokine family which also includes IL-6, IL-11, leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF), oncostatin M (OSM), and ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF). CT-1 is a pleiotropic cytokine which is expressed in various tissues including the adult heart, skeletal muscle, ovary, colon, prostate and fetal lung. In addition, CT-1 which induces cardiac myocyte hypertrophy in vitro can bind to and activate the ILST/gp130 receptor. Murine CT-1 encodes a 203 amino acid (a.a.) residue protein that lacks a hydrophobic signal peptide. Human and murine CT-1 share 80 % a.a. sequence identity and exhibit cross-species activity.
Source: E. coli
Species: Mouse
Form: Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered concentrated solution in 20 mM Tris, 300 mM NaCl, 3 mM β- mercaptoethanol, pH 8.5.
Bio-activity: Fully biologically active when compared to standard. The ED 50 determined by a cell proliferation assay using human TF-1 cells is less than 0.5 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of >2.0 × 10^6 IU/mg.
Molecular Mass: 18.2 kDa
Endotoxin: Less than 1 EU/μg of rMuCT-1 as determined by LAL method.
Purity: >95% by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analyses.
Usage: This material is for research, laboratory or further evaluation purposes. NOT FOR HUMAN USE.
Storage: This lyophilized preparation is stable at 2-8 centigrade, but should be kept at -20 centigrade for long term storage, preferably desiccated. Upon reconstitution, the preparation is stable for up to one week at 2-8 centigrade. For maximal stability, apportion the reconstituted preparation into working aliquots and store at -20 centigrade to -70 centigrade. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
Reconstitution: We recommend that this vial be briefy centrifuged prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Reconstitute in sterile distilled water or aqueous buffer containing 0.1% BSA to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. Stock solutions should be apportioned into working aliquots and stored at ≤ -20 centigrade. Further dilutions should be made in appropriate buffered solutions.
