GH human Recombinant produced in Nicotiana benthamiana plant is a single chain containing 205 amino acids (molecular formula C1025H1570N280O306S7) and 6-His-tag at the N-terminal having the total molecular mass of 22.9kDa.
GH is a member of the somatotropin/prolactin family of hormones which play an important role in growth control. The gene, along with four other related genes, is located at the growth hormone locus on chromosome 17 where they are interspersed in the same transcriptional orientation; an arrangement which is thoµght to have evolved by a series of gene duplications. The five genes share a remarkably high degree of sequence identity. Alternative splicing generates additional isoforms of each of the five growth hormones, leading to further diversity and potential for specialization. This particular family member is expressed in the pituitary but not in placental tissue as is the case for the other four genes in the growth hormone locus. Mutations in or deletions of the gene lead to growth hormone deficiency and short stature.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Lyophilized from 1mg/ml solution in PBS 0.05M buffer at pH 7.5.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized GH in sterile 18M-cm H2O not less than 100
Lyophilized GH althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution GH 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.
