Neurotrophin-3 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a non-glycosylated and non-covalently linked homodimer, containing 2x119 amino acid chains, having a total Mw of 27.2 kDa.The NT-3 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
NT3 a member of the neurotrophin family, that controls survival and differentiation of mammalian neurons. This protein is closely related to both nerve growth factor and brain-derived neurotrophic factor. It may be involved in the maintenance of the adult nervous system, and may affect development of neurons in the embryo when it is expressed in human placenta. NTF3-deficient mice generated by gene targeting display severe movement defects of the limbs. The mature peptide of this protein is identical in all mammals examined including human, pig, rat and mouse.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Lyophilized from a concentrated (1mg/ml) solution in water containing no additives.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Neurotrophin-3 in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized NGF2 althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution NGF-2 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.
Greater than 98.0% as determined by:(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
The ED50 as determined by the dose-dependant induction of choline acetyl transferase in rat basal forebrain primary septal culture was found between 20-50ng/ml, corresponding to a Specific Activity of 20,000-50,000IU/mg.
