Recombinant Human Neurotrophin-3 - rHuNT-3

Description Recombinant Human NT-3 produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 119 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 13606.29 Dalton. The rHuNT-3 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Source Escherichia Coli.
Physical Appearance: Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Formulation: Lyophilized from a concentrated (1mg/ml) solution in water containing no additives.
Solubility: It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized rHuNT-3 in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Stability: Lyophilized rHuNT-3 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18 °C. Upon reconstitution rHuNT-3 should be stored at 4 °C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18 °C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
Purity: Greater than 98.0% as determined by: (a) Analysis by RP-HPLC. (b) Anion-exchange FPLC. (c) Analysis by reducing and non-reducing SDS-PAGE Silver Stained gel.
Amino acid sequence: The sequence of the first five N-terminal amino acids was determined and was found to be Tyr-Ala-Glu-His-Lys.
Dimers and aggregates: Less than 1% as determined by silver-stained SDS-PAGE gel analysis.
Biological Activity: ProSpec's rHuNT-3 is fully biologically active when compared to standard. The ED50 as determined by the dose-dependant induction of choline acetyl transferase in rat basal forebrain primary septal culture was found between 20-50 ng/ml.
Endotoxin: Less than 0.1 ng/µg (IEU/µg) of rHuNT-3.
Protein content: Protein quantitation was carried out by two independent methods: UV spectroscopy at 280 nm using the absorbency value of 2.165 as the extinction coefficient for a 0.1% (1mg/ml) solution. This value is calculated by the PC GENE computer analysis program of protein sequences (IntelliGenetics). Analysis by RP-HPLC, using a standard solution of NT-3 as a Reference Standard.
Usage: This material is for research, laboratory or further manufacturing purposes.
