||Full length protein (Human) protein having a single, glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 51 amino acids. M.Wt 6 kDa.Source: Pichia Pastoris.
||This gene encodes a member of the epidermal growth factor superfamily. The encoded protein is synthesized as a large precursor molecule that is proteolytically cleaved to generate the 53-amino acid epidermal growth factor peptide. This protein acts a potent mitogenic factor that plays an important role in the growth, proliferation and differentiation of numerous cell types. This protein acts by binding the high affinity cell surface receptor, epidermal growth factor receptor. Defects in this gene are the cause of hypomagnesemia type 4. Dysregulation of this gene has been associated with the growth and progression of certain cancers. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
||Expressed in kidney, salivary gland, cerebrum and prostate.
||Lyophilised:It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Epidermal Growth Factor in sterile water to not less than 100μg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
||>95% by SDS-PAGE
||Preservative: NoneConstituents: 150mM Sodium chloride, 25mM Sodium bicarbonate, pH 7.5
||Store at +4°C short term (1-2 weeks). Aliquot and store at -20°C or -80°C. Avoid repeated freeze / thaw cycles.
|Sequences of amino acids:
||The sequence of the first five N-terminal amino acids was determined and was found to be Asn-Ser-Asp-Ser-Glu, which agrees with the sequence of native human EGF. N-terminal methionine has been completely removed enzymatically.
||Contains 9 EGF-like domains.Contains 9 LDL-receptor class B repeats.
