FGF13 Human Recombinant produced in E.coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 245 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 27.6kDa.The FGF-13 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Fibroblast growth factor 13 (FGF-13) is a member of the large FGF family which has at least 23 members. Most of its members are heparin binding growth factors with a core 120 amino acid (aa) FGF domain which allows for a mutual tertiary structure. Human and mouse FGF13 are 245 aa proteins which arise from genes that show N-terminal alternative splicing. Transcripts for 245 aa, 199 aa, 226 aa, 192 aa and 255 aa have been identified in human and mouse, with almost complete cross-species aa identity among all splice forms (greater than 98%). FGF13 is identified in the fetal ependyma, dorsal root and cranial ganglia, both atrial and ventricular myocardium, and in renal collecting duct-associated mesenchyme.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
FGF13 protein was lyophilized from a 0.2
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized FGF-13 in sterile 18M-cm H2O not less than 100
Lyophilized FGF13 althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution FGF-13 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.
