Nerve Growth Factor-beta Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a non-covalently disulfide-linked homodimer, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 2 identical 121 amino acids with a molecular weight of two 13.6 kDa polypeptide monomers.The NGF-b is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
NGF-beta has nerve growth stimulating activity and the complex is involved in the regulation of growth and the differentiation of sympathetic and certain sensory neurons. Mutations in this gene have been associated with hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy, type 5 (HSAN5), and dysregulation of this gene's expression is associated with allergic rhinitis.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
The beta-NGF protein was lyophilized from a 0.2
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized NGF-b in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized Beta-NGF althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution NGF-Beta 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.
