Description: Platelet-Derived Growth Factor AA Human Recombinant is a homodimeric, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 2 x 125 amino acids and having a total molecular mass of 28511 Dalton. PDGF-AA is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Protein Derived From: Escherichia Coli.
Physical Appearance: Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Purity: Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Stability: Lyophilized Platelet-Derived Growth Factor AA although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution PDGF-AA 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, calculated by the dose-dependent proliferation of murine 3T3 indicator cells is < 0.32ng/ml, corresponding to a Specific Activity of 3,125x103units/mg.
Solubility: It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Platelet-derived Growth Factor-AA in sterile 18MOmega-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
