Nesfatin-1 is a metabolic polypeptide encoded in the N-terminal region of the precursor protein, Nucleobindin2 (NUCB2). Originally identified as a hypothalamic neuropeptide, Nesfatin-1 is also expressed in other areas of the brain, and in pancreatic isletsβ-cells, gastric endocrine cells and adipocytes. Nesfatin-1 suppresses food intake and can regulate energy metabolism in a Leptin independent manner. Recombinant human Nesfatin-1 is a 9.7 kDa protein containing 82 amino acid residues.
Human NUCB2 expressed in E.coli
CAT# CSC-CTK0641-100 (100 μg); CAT# CSC-CTK0641-500 (500 μg)
Greater than 98% as determined by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analysis.
Less than 1 EU/μg.
Sterile-filtered through a 0.2 micron filter and ly ophilized from 10 mM sodium phosphate (pH 6.5).
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.
