ActoFactor™ Recombinant Human Gremlin 1, DAN family BMP antagonist (CHO)

  • Specification
  • Recommended Products
Cat.No.
CSC-CTK0627
Description
Gremlin-1 (isoform-1) belongs to a group of diffusible proteins which bind to ligands of the TGF- β family and regulate their activity by inhibiting their access to signaling receptors. The interplay between TGF-β ligands and their natural antagonists has major biological significance during development processes, in which cellular response can vary considerably depending upon the local concentration of the signaling molecule. Gremlin is highly expressed in the small intestine, fetal brain, and colon and lower expression in brain, prostate, pancreas and skeletal muscle. Gremlin-1 regulates multiple functions in early development by specifically binding to and inhibiting the function of BMP-2, -4, and -7. It also plays a role in carcinogenesis and kidney branching morphogenesis. Recombinant Gremlin-1 is a 13.7 kDa protein containing 160 amino acid residues.
Organism
Human
Product Overview
Human GREM1 expressed in CHO cells
Molecular Mass
13.7 kDa
Size
CAT# CSC-CTK0627-50 (50 μg); CAT# CSC-CTK0627-250 (250 μg)
Expression System
CHO cells
Purity
Greater than 90% as determined by SDS-PAGE and RP-HPLC analysis.
Activity
Determined by its ability to inhibit BMP-4 induced alkaline phosphatase production by ATDC-5 chondrogenic cells. The ED50 for this effect is 0.07-0.11 μg/ml.
Endotoxin Level
Less than 1 EU/μg.
Formulation
Sterile-filtered through a 0.2 micron filter and ly ophilized from 10 mM sodium phosphate (pH 7.5), 150 mM NaCl.
Reconstitution
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.
