Epidermal Growth Factor Rat Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 53 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 6151 Dalton. The Rat EGF is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Epidermal growth factor has a profound effect on the differentiation of specific cells in vivo and is a potent mitogenic factor for a variety of cultured cells of both ectodermal and mesodermal origin. The EGF precursor is believed to exist as a membrane-bound molecule which is proteolytically cleaved to generate the 53-amino acid peptide hormone that stimulates cells to divide.EGF stimulates the growth of various epidermal and epithelial tissues in vivo and in vitro and of some fibroblasts in cell culture.
Urogastrone, URG, EGF.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Rat EGF was lyophilized from a 0.2
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Rat EGF in sterile water not less than 100
Lyophilized Rat EGF althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution Rat EGF 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.
