Recombinant Human Transforming Growth Factor α/TGFα (C178)

目录 规格 价格
Recombinant Human Transforming Growth Factor alpha is produced by our E.coli expression system and the target gene encoding Val41-Val90 is expressed.
Greater than 95% as determined by reducing SDS-PAGE.
Lyophilized protein should be stored at < -20°C, though stable at room temperature for 3 weeks.
Reconstituted protein solution can be stored at 4-7°C for 2-7 days.
Aliquots of reconstituted samples are stable at < -20°C for 3 months.
Always centrifuge tubes before opening. Do not mix by vortex or pipetting.
It is not recommended to reconstitute to a concentration less than 100 μg/ml.
Dissolve the lyophilized protein in ddH2O.
Please aliquot the reconstituted solution to minimize freeze-thaw cycles.
Transforming Growth Factor α (TGF-α) belongs to the EGF family of cytokines. It is a mitogenic polypeptide and secreted protein, which is expressed by monocytes, keratinocytes, and various tumor cells. TGFα contains two chains, protransforming growth factor α and transforming growth factor α. It can bind to the EGF receptor that synergistically with TGFβ to stimulate anchorage-independent cell proliferation and produce a mitogenic response. TGFα interacts with the PDZ domains of MAGI3, SDCBP and SNTA1. The interaction with SDCBP is required for the targeting to the cell surface.
