Product Name: IFN g Human

Product No: CYT-206

Synonym(s): IFN-Gamma Human Recombinant, Immune IFN, type II IFN, T cell IFN, MAF, IFNG, IFG, IFI, IFN-gamma.


Description: IFN-gamma Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 144 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 17kDa.The IFN-gamma is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Protein Derived From: Escherichia Coli.

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

Purity: Greater than 98.0% as determined by:(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.

Stability: Lyophilized IFN gamma although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18C. Upon reconstitution IFN-gamma should be stored at 4C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18C.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 specific activity as determined in a viral resistance assay is < 0.05 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of 2.0 x 10,000,000 IU/mg.

Solubility: It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized IFN-gamma in sterile distilled water or 20mM AcOH not less than 100microg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.

Protein content: Protein quantitation was carried out by two independent methods: 1. UV spectroscopy at 280 nm using the absorbency value of 0.640 as the extinction coefficient for a 0.1% (1mg/ml) solution. This value is calculated by the PC GENE computer analysis program of protein sequences (IntelliGenetics). 2. Analysis by RP-HPLC, using a calibrated solution of IFN-g as a Reference Standard.
