TGFB1 Human Recombinant

Product Name: TGFB1 Human Recombinant

Product No: CYT-716

Synonym(s): Transforming Growth Factor-Beta 1 Human Recombinant, Transforming growth factor beta-1, TGF-beta-1, CED, DPD1, TGFB, TGF-b 1, LAP, TGFB1.


Description: TGFB1 Human Recombinant produced in CHO cells is a glycosylated homodimeric polypeptide chain containing 2 x 112 amino acids and having a total molecular mass of 25.6kDa. The TGFB1 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Protein Derived From: CHO cells.

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

Purity: Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.

Stability: Lyophilized TGFB1 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution TGFB1 Human 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 the dose-dependent inhibition of IL-4-induced proliferation of HT-2 cells is 0.148ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of 6.8x106units/mg.

Solubility: It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized TGFB1 in sterile 10mM HClat a concentration of 0.1 mg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
