- MANF is a secreted neurotrophic factor that is expressed in brain, neuronal and certain non- neuronal tissues. It has been shown to promote survival, growth and function of dopamine specific neurons. MANF and its structural homolog CDNF, each contain an N-terminal saposin- like lipid binding domain, and a carboxyl-terminal domain, which is not homologous to previously characterized protein structures. MANF and CDNF can prevent 6-OHDA induced degeneration of dopaminergic neurons by triggering survival pathways in a rat experimental model of Parkinson disease. Recombinant human MANF is an 18.1 kDa protein consisting of 158 amino acids including 8 cysteine residues.
- Product Overview
- Human MANF expressed in E.coli
- CAT# CSC-CTK0642-25 (25 μg); CAT# CSC-CTK0642-125 (125 μg)
- Greater than 98% as determined by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analysis.
- Determined by its ability to stimulate the proliferation of rat C6 cells. The expected ED50 for this effect is 15-25 μg/ml.
- Endotoxin Level
- Less than 1 EU/μg.
- Sterile filtered through a 0.2 micron filter and ly ophilized from 10 mM sodium phosphate (pH 7.0).
- Please centrifuge product briefly before opening vial. The lyophilized protein should be reconstituted in sterile, ultra-pure water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml. This solution can then be diluted into other aqueous buffers and stored at -20°C for future use.
- Storage & Stability
- The lyophilized protein, though stable at room temperature for up to 3 weeks, is best stored desiccated at -20°C. Reconstituted protein should be used immediately or stored long-term in undiluted working aliquots at -20°C. For long-term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
