Description: Insulin-Like Growth Factor-I Rabbit Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 71 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 7639 Dalton.

Protein Derived From: Escherichia Coli.

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

Purity: Greater than 98.0% as determined by:(a) Gel-filtration chromatography under non denaturing conditions.(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.

Stability: Lyophilized Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution IGF1 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: IGF-I is biologically active when compared to human IGF-1. The ED50, calculated by the dose -dependent proliferation of human MCF/7 cells is 5 to 25ng/ml in the cell culture mixture dependent on culture conditions. Its activity consists of 30-40 % compared to human IGF-1.

Solubility: It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized rbIGF-I in sterile 0.4% NaHCO3 adjusted to ph 8-9, not less than 100microg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
