||Recombinant Human Procalcitonin produced inE.Coliis a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 114 amino acids fragment (3-116) having a molecular mass of 17.13 kDa and an amino-terminal his tag. The PCT is purified by standard chromatographic techniques.
||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.
||Sterile Filtered clear solution.
||Greater than 95.0% as determined by: (a) Analysis by RP-HPLC. (b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
||PCT is supplied in 1x PBS and 50% glycerol.
||Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks. Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time. Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
