Twisted Gastrulation Protein (TSG) is a secreted BMP binding protein structurally related to the BMP antagonists Chordin and Noggin. TSG can inhibit BMP activity by binding directly to BMP proteins, and can act either as a BMP4 agonist or antagonist (depending on the specific biochemical environment) by binding to the BMP4/Chordin complex. Recombinant human TSG is a 199 amino acid 22.2 kDa protein containing the BMP/TGFβ binding portion of the full length TSG protein.
Human TWSG1 expressed in E.coli
CAT# CSC-CTK0359-50 (50 μg); CAT# CSC-CTK0359-250 (250 μg)
Greater than 98% as determined by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analysis.
Determined by its ability to neutralize BMP-6 induced alkaline phosphatase production by ATDC chondrogenic cells. The expected ED50 for this effect is < 2.0 μg/ml of TSG.
Less than 1 EU/μg.
Lyophilized from a sterile-filtered solution with no additives.
Please centrifuge product before opening vial. The lyophilized protein should be reconstituted with distilled, sterile water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml. For further dilution, carrier protein (0.1% BSA or HSA) should be added to avoid loss of bioactivity.
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.
