Recombinant Human Platelet Derived Growth Factor-BB - rHuPDGF-BB

Description Recombinant Human PDGF-BB produced in E.Coli is a double, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 109 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 24525.18 Dalton. rHuPDGF-BB is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Source Escherichia Coli.
Physical Appearance: Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Formulation: The protein was lyophilized after extensive dialysis against 2mM sodium phosphate buffer pH= 7.4±0.1.
Solubility: It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized rHuPDGF-BB in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Stability: Lyophilized rHuPDGF-BB although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18 °C. Upon reconstitution rHuPDGF-BB 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.
Amino acid sequence: The sequence of the first five N-terminal amino acids was determined and was found to be Ser-Leu-Gly-Ser-Leu.
Dimers and aggregates: Less than 1% as determined by silver stained SDS-PAGE gel analysis.
Biological Activity: ProSpec's rHuPDGF-BB is fully biologically active when compared to standard. The ED50, calculated by the dose-dependant proliferation of murine BALB/c 3T3 indicator cells (measured by 3H-thymidine uptake) isless then1 ng/ml, corresponding to a Specific Activity of 1 MIU/mg.
Endotoxin: Less than 0.1 ng/µg (IEU/µg) of rHuPDGF-BB.
Protein content: Protein quantitation was carried out by two independent methods: UV spectroscopy at 280 nm using the absorbency value of 0.55 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 PDGF-BB as a Reference Standard.
Usage: This material is for research, laboratory or further manufacturing purposes.
