NGF Protein, Human, Recombinant: Product Information

Purity
> 95 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Endotoxin
< 1.0 EU per μg of the protein as determined by the LAL method
Activity
Measured in a cell proliferation assay using TF-1 human erythroleukemic cells. The ED50 for this effect is typically 0.2-2 ng/ml.
Protein Construction
A DNA sequence encoding the mature form of human β-NGF (NP_002497.2) (Ser 122-Arg 239) was expressed.
Accession#
Expressed Host
CHO Stable Cells
Species
Human
Predicted N Terminal
Ser 122
Molecule Mass
The mature recombinant human β-NGF consists of 118 amino acids and has a predicted molecular mass of 13.2 kDa. β-NGF exists as a non-disulfide linked homodimer in solution.
Formulation
Lyophilized from sterile 20mM NaAc, 150mM NaCl, pH 5.5
1. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose, mannitol and 0.01% Tween80 are added as protectants before lyophilization. Specific concentrations are included in the hardcopy of COA.
2. Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
Please refer to the specific buffer information in the hard copy of CoA.
Shipping
In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature.
Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
Stability & Storage
Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃
Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Reconstitution
A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.

NGF Background Information

Nerve growth factor (NGF) is important for the development and maintenance of the sympathetic and sensory nervous systems. NGF protein was identified as a large complex consisting of three non-covalently linked subunits, α, β, and γ, among which, the β subunit, called β-NGF (beta-NGF), was demonstrated to exhibits the growth stimulating activity of NGF protein. NGFB/beta-NGF gene is a member of the NGF-beta family and encodes a secreted protein which homodimerizes and is incorporated into a larger complex. NGF protein acts via at least two receptors on the surface of cells (TrkA and p75 receptors) to regulate neuronal survival, promote neurite outgrowth, and up-regulate certain neuronal functions such as mediation of pain and inflammation. In addition, previous studies indicated that NGF may also have an important role in the regulation of the immune system.
