Beta Defensin-3 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 45 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 5161.2 Dalton. The BD-3 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Defensins form a family of microbicidal and cytotoxic peptides made by neutrophils. Members of the defensin family are highly similar in protein sequence. This gene encodes defensin, beta 103A, which has broad spectrum antimicrobial activity and may play an important role in innate epithelial defense.
HBD3, HBP3, DEFB3, HBD-3, HBP-3, DEFB103.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
The HBD-3 was lyophilized without additives.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Beta Defensin-3 in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized Beta Defensin-3 Recombinant althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution BD-3 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
