||Growth hormone receptor, also known as GHR is a transmembrane receptor for growth hormone. Binding of growth hormone to the receptor leads to receptor dimerization and the activation of an intra- and intercellular signal transduction pathway leading to growth. Mutations in this gene have been associated with Laron syndrome, also known as the growth hormone insensitivity syndrome (GHIS), a disorder characterized by short stature (proportional dwarfism).
|State Of Matter:
||>90% by SDS Page and analyzed by silver stain.
||<1.0 EU/µg as determined by the LAL method.
||The predicted molecular weight of Recombinant Human GHR is Mr 54 kDa. However, the actual molecular weight as observed by migration on SDS Page is Mr 75-90 kDa.
|Storage And Stability:
||This lyophilized protein is stable for six to twelve months when stored desiccated at -20°C to -70°C. After aseptic reconstitution, this protein may be stored at 2°C to 8°C for one month or at -20°C to -70°C in a manual defrost freezer. Avoid Repeated Freeze Thaw Cycles.
