Inhibin-Alpha Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 264 amino acids comprising of both A and B chains, having a molecular mass of 33.5 kDa.The Inhibin-Alpha is fused with an amino-terminal hexahistidine tag. The Inhibin-Alpha is purified by standard chromatographic techniques.
Inhibins are dimeric peptide hormones produced by female ovarian granulose cells and male Sertoli cells as well as a variety of other tissues. Inhibins have two isoforms, A and B, with the same alpha subunit but different beta subunits. Inhibin A is a dimer of alpha and beta A subunits, inhibin B is a dimer of alpha and beta B subunits.Inhibins are thoµght to inhibit the production of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) by the pituitary gland. In addition, Inhibins are also thoµght to play a role in the control of gametogenesis, and embryonic and fetal development.
Sterile Filtered clear solution.
Inhibin-A alpha chain is supplied in 1x PBS and 50% glycerol.
