Recombinant Human Growth Hormone
Catalog number: RF0011
Format: 50ug, 1 mg
Origin: It is produced by transient expression in non-transgenic plants. Recombinant Human Growth Hormone is purified by sequential chromatography (FPLC). This product contains no animal–derived components or impurities. Animal Free product.
Description: Recombinant Human Growth Hormone is a polypeptide containing 205 aminoacids fused to a 6 His tag at N-terminal . It migrates at 22.9 kDa. It is a member of the somatotropin/prolactin family of hormones which play an important role in growth control. This particular family member is expressed in the pituitary but not in placental tissue as is the case for the other four genes in the growth hormone locus. Mutations in or deletions of the gene lead to growth hormone deficiency and short stature.
Purity: > 95% by SDS-PAGE gel
Endotoxin: < 0.04 EU / μg protein (LAL method)
Formulation: Lyophilized PBS pH 7,6 and 0.05M NaCl. Sterile filtered through 0.2 µm filter.
Reconstitution: Always centrifuge the vial before opening. Lyophilized protein should be reconstituted in water following instructions of batch Quality Control Sheet. At higher concentrations solubility may be reduced. Optimal concentration should be determined for specific application.
Storage and Stability: This lyophilized preparation is stable at 2-8º C for short term. For longer storage it should be kept at -20ºC. Reconstituted protein should be stored in working aliquots at –20°C. Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended.
