Octreotide Human Synthetic is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 8 amino acids, having a molecular mass of 1019.26 Dalton and a molecular formula of C49H66N10O10S2.Octreotide is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Octreotide acetate is a longer acting synthetic octapeptide analog of naturally occurring somatostatin. It inhibits the secretion of gastro-entero-pancreatic peptide hormones and the release of growth hormone.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
The Octreotide was lyophilized from a concentrated (1 mg/ml) solution with no additives.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Octreotide in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100 µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized Octreotide althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution Octreotide 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.
Amino Acid Sequence
Greater than 98.0% as determined by RP-HPLC.
