Human FGF 18 Bioactive Protein Product Attributes
Product Type: Bioactive Protein
Recombinant FGF 18 based upon sequence from Human
Host: QP10598 protein expressed in E. Coli.
Available Tags: Untagged
Protein Construction: A cDNA sequence encoding the sequence of FGF 18 was constructred and used to recombinantly synthesize the protein.
Recommended Applications: Bioactive
Recommended Reconstitution Instructions: It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized FGF-18 in sterile 18MΩ.cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Bioactivity Data: The ED50 as determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of thymidine uptake by BaF3 cells expressing FGF-receptors is 2.0Ã106 units/mg.
Amino Acid Sequence: AEENVDFRIH VENQTRARDD VSRKQLRLYQ LYSRTSGKHI QVLGRRISAR GEDGDKYAQL LVETDTFGSQ VRIKGKETEF YLCMNRKGKL VGKPDGTSKE CVFIEKVLEN NYTALMSAKY SGWYVGFTKK GRPRKGPKTR ENQQDVHFMK RYPKGQPELQ KPFKYTTVTK RSRRIRPTHP A
Purity: Greater than 95.0% as determined by: (a) Analysis by RP-HPLC. (b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
Buffer: FGF-18 protein was lyophilized from a 0.2µm filtered concentrated solution in PBS, pH 7.4.
Storage Conditions: Lyophilized FGF-18 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution FGF-18 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.
Physical Appearance: Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
