Description: TFF-1 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a homodimer, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 2 x 60 amino acids which includes a 40 amino acid trefoil motif containing 3 conserved intramolecular disulfide bonds and having a total molecular mass of 13.2 kDa. TFF-1 Human Recombinant 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 TFF1 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution TFF1 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 chemotaxis bioassay using human MCF-7 cells is less than 10µg/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of >100 IU/mg.

Solubility: It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized TFF1 in sterile 18MOmega-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
