Description: IGF1 N15 Human Recombinant produced in E.coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 70 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 7.74kDa. The N15 is stable isotope labeled. The IGF1 N15 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Protein Derived From: Escherichia Coli.

Physical Appearance: Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.

Purity: Greater than 97.0% as determined by:(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.

Stability: Lyophilized IGF1 N15 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution IGF1 N15 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

Biological Activity: The ED50 as determined by a cell proliferation assay using serum free human MCF-7 cells is less than 2ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of > 5.0 × 105 IU/mg.

Solubility: It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized IGF1 N15 in sterile 18M-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
