Product Details

Alternative Name:β-NGF
MW:~27kDa (dimer).
Source:Produced in E. coli. Dimer of two identical subunits (119 aa) linked together by very strong hydrophobic interactions.
UniProt ID:P01138
Quantity:5µg (determined by amino acid analysis).
Formulation:Lyophilized. No additives.
Purity:≥98% (HPLC)
Biological Activity:Neurotrophic activity was bioassayed using rat pheochromocytoma PC12 cell cultures over a period of 5-14 days. Activity is in the range  of 1-50ng/ml.
Reconstitution:Reconstitue in water or DMEM to a final concentration of at least 10µg/ml and store at -80°C before use.
Shipping:Blue Ice
Long Term Storage:-20°C
Use/Stability:Lyophilized protein is stable for 2-3 weeks when stored at room temperature and for 6-9 months when stored at -20°C.Reconstituted protein is stable for up to 1 week when stored at +4°C and for 4-6 weeks when stored at -80°C.
Handling:Avoid freeze/thaw cycles.
Scientific Background:Human β-NGF is responsible for survival, differentiation and maturation of sympathetic and sensory neurons.
Regulatory Status:RUO - Research Use Only

Figure: Neurite outgrowth in PC12 cells. Method: PC12 cells were grown on collagen coated 24-well plates in DMEM medium supplemented with 6% fetal calf serum and 6% horse serum for 24 hours. β-Nerve Growth Factor (human) (rec.) (Prod. No. ALX-521-005) was addded at the indicated concentrations. The culture media was changed every 2-3 days. The development of neurites over a period of 5 days was visualized by methylene blue staining."
