Introduction

Calcitonin (CT) is a peptide hormone produced by the parafollicular cells of the thyroid gland in mammals and by the ultimobranchial gland of birds and fish. Salmon calcitonin (sCT), which is more potent and longer lasting than human CT, has been used widely for the treatment of osteoporosis, paget's disease, hypercalcemic shock and chronic pain in terminal cancer patients. sCT is one of the many bioactive peptides that require C-terminal amidation for full biological activity.

Description

Calcitonin Acetate (Salmon) is a synthetic polypeptide of 32 amino acids in the same linear sequence that is found in calcitonin of salmon origin. The Molecular Formula is C145H240N44O48S2. Calcitonin Molecular Weight: 3431.9 Dalton.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.

Formulation

The calcitonin peptide was lyophilized with no additives.

Solubility

It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Calcitonin in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100 µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.

Stability

Lyophilized Calcitonin although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution CGRP 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

Calcitonin Acetate (Salmon) has an amino acid sequence of: Cys-Ser-Asn-Leu-Ser-Thr-Cys-Val-Leu-Gly-Lys-Leu-Ser-Gln-Glu-Leu-His-Lys-Leu-Gln-Thr-Tyr-Pro-Arg-Thr-Asn-Thr-Gly-Ser-Gly-Thr-Pro-NH2.

Purity

Greater than 98.0% as determined by:
(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
