CT-1 is a member of the IL-6 family of cytokines which also includes LIF, CNTF, OSM (Oncostatin M), IL-11, IL-6 and possibly NNT-1/ BCSF-3. CT-1 is a pleiotropic cytokine which is expressed in various tissues including the adult heart, skeletal muscle, ovary, colon, prostate and fetal lung and signals through the LIF receptor and the gp130 receptor subunit. CT-1 has the ability to induce cardiac myocyte hypertrophy, and enhances the survival of cardiomyocyte and different neuronal populations. Recombinant murine Cardiotrophin-1 is a 21.3 kDa protein consisting of 202 amino acid residues.
Mouse Ctf1 expressed in E.coli
CAT# CSC-CTK0784-10 (10 μg); CAT# CSC-CTK0784-50 (50 μg)
Greater than 98% as determined by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analysis.
The ED50 as determined by the dose-dependent proliferation of TF-1 cells was 1 x 10^6 units/mg.
Less than 1 EU/μg.
Lyophilized from a sterile-filtered solution with no additives.
Please centrifuge product briefly before opening the vial. Reconstitute in sterile, ultra-pure water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml. This solution can be diluted into other aqueous buffers and stored at -20°C for future use.
Storage & Stability
The lyophilized powder, though stable at room temperature for up to 3 weeks, is best stored desiccated at -20°C. Reconstituted CT-1 should be used immediately or stored in undiluted working aliquots at -20°C. Avoid repeated freeze / thaw cycles.
