Hepatocyte Growth Factor Human Recombinant produced in Baculovirus is a heterodimer, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 692 a.a and having a total molecular mass of 78.0 KDa.The HGF is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Hepatocyte Growth Factor (HGF) is a multifunctional growth factor which regulates both cell growth and cell motility. It exerts a strong mitogenic effect on hepatocytes and primary epithelial cells. HGF synergizes with Interleukin-3 and GM-CSF to stimulate colony formation of hematopoietic progenitor cells in vitro and may, therefore, also modulate hematopoiesis.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
The sterile protein powder (1 mg/ml) is lyophilized from a solution containing 50mM acetic acid.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Hepatocyte Growth Factor in 50mM acetic acid to a concentration not less than 100
Lyophilized Hepatocyte Growth Factor althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution HGF 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.
