ActoFactor™ Recombinant Human SMAD family member 2 (HEK)

  • Specification
  • Recommended Products
Cat.No.
CSC-CTK0113
Description
Activin A is a TGF-beta family member that exhibits a wide range of biological activities including regulation of cellular proliferation and differentiation, and promotion of neuronal survival. Elevated levels of Activin A in human colorectal tumors and in post-menopausal woman have been implicated in colorectal and breast cancers, respectively. The biological activities of Activin A can be neutralized by inhibins and by the diffusible TGF-beta antagonist, Follistatin. Human Activin A is a 25 kDa disulfide-linked homodimer. It has been purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques. Please note: Recombinant human Activin A is identical to recombinant mouse and rat Activin A as numerous literary sources demonstrating the complete identity of the mature Activin A sequence among these three species.
Species
Human
Product Overview
Human SMAD2 expressed in HEK cells
Molecular Mass
25 kDa
Size
CAT# CSC-CTK0113-5 (5 μg); CAT# CSC-CTK0113-25 (25 μg)
Expression System
HEK cells
Purity
Greater than 95% as determined by SDS-PAGE analysis.
Activity
rHu Activin A is fully biologically active when compared to a standard. The specific activity was determined by the dose-dependent inhibition of proliferation of the MPC-11 cell line (mouse plasmocytoma cell line) and is typically 0.5-5 ng/ml.
Endotoxin Level
Less than 1 EU/μg.
Formulation
Sterile-filtered, white, lyophilized (freeze-dried)powder. Lyophilized from a concentrated protein solution (1 mg/ml) in 1xPBS.
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 rHu Activin A 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.
