Recombinant Human Epidermal Growth Factor 21-Leu

Cat. No. : EGF-166H
Product Overview : Recombinant human EGF 21-Leu produced inE.Coliis a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 53 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 6205 Dalton. The recombinant EGF 21-Leu is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Description : Epidermal growth factor or EGF is a growth factor that plays an important role in the regulation of cell growth, proliferation, and differentiation by binding to its receptor EGFR. Human EGF is a 6045-Da protein with 53 amino acid residues and three intramolecular disulfide bonds.
Source : Escherichia Coli.
AA Sequence : The sequence of the first five N-terminal amino acids was determined and was found to be Asn-Ser-Asp-Ser-Glu.
Supplied : Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Purity : Greater than 98.0% as determined by: (a) Analysis by RP-HPLC. (b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE gel.
Formulation : The protein was lyophilized from a concentrated (1mg/ml) solution with no additives.
Solubility : It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized human EGF 21-Leu in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions
Biological Activity : Feldan Bio"s human EGF is fully biologically active when compared to standards. The ED50, calculated by the dose-dependant proliferation of MDCK cells is < 10 ng/ml.
Storage : Lyophilized recombinant EGF 21-Leu although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -180°C. Upon reconstitution human EGF 21-Leu should be stored at 40°Cbetween 2-7 days and for future use below -180°C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Please avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
