Introduction

GDF8 is a member of the bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) family and the TGF-beta superfamily. This group of proteins is characterized by a polybasic proteolytic processing site which is cleaved to produce a mature protein containing seven conserved cysteine residues. The members of this family are regulators of cell growth and differentiation in both embryonic and adult tissues. This gene is thought to encode a secreted protein which negatively regulates skeletal muscle growth.

Description

Myostatin Human Recombinant produced in HEK cells is a single, glycosylated, polypeptide chain (Asn24-Ser375) containing a total of 360 amino acids, having a calculated molecular mass of 41.1kDa. Myostatin is fused to a 2 aa N-terminal linker and a 6 aa His tag at N-Terminus.

Source

HEK 293.

Physical Appearance

Filtered colorless solution.

Formulation

Myostatin solution at a concentration of 0.25mg/ml in phosphate buffered saline (PBS) pH 8.0 and 20% (w/v) glycerol.

Stability

Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks. Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time.
