Description: CTGF Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 98 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 11.2 kDa. The CTGF is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Protein Derived From: Escherichia Coli.

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

Purity: Purity of CTGF is greater than 90% as determined by SDS-PAGE.

Stability: Lyophilized CTGF although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18C. Upon reconstitution CTGF 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: Determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of the proliferation of HUVEC cells. The expected ED50 for this effect is 1-2µg/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of 500-1000units/mg.

Solubility: It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized CTGF in sterile 18MOmegacm H2O not less than 100microg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
