BD-1 Rat Recombinant produced in E.coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 37 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 4.1kDa.The BD-1 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
The Defensin family are highly similar in their protein sequence and are microbicidal & cytotoxic peptides made by neutrophils. Beta Defensin-1 is an antimicrobial peptide having the resistance of epithelial surfaces to microbial colonization. Beta Defensin-1 has close proximity to Defensin Alpha-1 and has been implicated in the pathogenesis of cystic fibrosis.Skin of patients having atopic dermatitis patients and mycosis fungoides (non-lesional and lesional) show lower human Beta Defensin-1 mRNA expression and higher human Beta Defensin-2 and human Beta Defensin-3 mRNA expression. Beta Defensin is highly expressed by epithelial cells. Beta-defensin 1 may play a role in the pathogenesis of severe sepsis.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
BD-1 protein was lyophilized from a 0.2
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized BD-1 in sterile 18M-cm H2O not less than 100
Lyophilized BD-1 althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution BD-1 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.
