Introduction

IGFBP3 is a member of the insulin-like growth factor binding protein (IGFBP) family and encodes a protein with an IGFBP domain and a thyroglobulin type-I domain. The protein forms a ternary complex with insulin-like growth factor acid-labile subunit (IGFALS) and either insulin-like growth factor (IGF) I or II. In this form, it circulates in the plasma, prolonging the half-life of IGFs and altering their interaction with cell surface receptors. Alternate transcriptional splice variants, encoding different isoforms, have been characterized.

Description

IGFBP3 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a homodimeric, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 2x264 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 28806 Dalton.
IGFBP-3 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source

Escherichia Coli.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.

Formulation

Lyophilized from a 0.2µm filtered concentrated (0.5mg/ml) solution in PBS, pH 7.4.

Solubility

It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Insulin-Like Growth Factor Binding Protein-3 in sterile 20mM AcOH (acetic Acid) not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.

Stability

Lyophilized IBP3 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C.
Upon reconstitution IGF-BP 3 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.

Purity

Greater than 97.0% as determined by:
(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
