Recombinant Human CTGF

Cat.No.: CTGF-28023TH
Product Overview: Recombinant fragment, corresponding to amino acids 253-350 of Human CTGF, a 11.2 kDa protein of 98 amino acid residues which exerts full heparin binding, cell adhesion, and mitogenic CTGF activity.
Description: The protein encoded by this gene is a mitogen that is secreted by vascular endothelial cells. The encoded protein plays a role in chondrocyte proliferation and differentiation, cell adhesion in many cell types, and is related to platelet-derived growth factor. Certain polymorphisms in this gene have been linked with a higher incidence of systemic sclerosis.
Source: E. coli
Tissue specificity: Expressed in bone marrow and thymic cells. Also expressed one of two Wilms tumors tested.
Biological activity: Biological Activity : Determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of the proliferation of HUVEC cells. The expected ED50 for this effect is 1.0-2.0 μg/ml.
Form: Lyophilised
Purity: >95% by SDS-PAGE
Storage buffer: Spin down vial and reconstitute in distilled water for a concentration of 0.1 - 1.0 mg/ml.
Storage: The lyophilized protein is stable for a few weeks at room temperature, but best stored at -20°C.
Sequence Similarities: Belongs to the CCN family.Contains 1 CTCK (C-terminal cystine knot-like) domain.Contains 1 IGFBP N-terminal domain.Contains 1 TSP type-1 domain.Contains 1 VWFC domain.
