CXCL4, PF-4, PF4, Iroplact, Oncostatin-A, SCYB4, MGC138298.
Platelet factor-4 is a 70-amino acid protein that is released from the alpha-granules of activated platelets and binds with high affinity to heparin. Its major physiologic role appears to be neutralization of heparin-like molecules on the endothelial surface of blood vessels, thereby inhibiting local antithrombin III activity and promoting coagulation. As a strong chemoattractant for neutrophils and fibroblasts, PF4 probably has a role in inflammation and wound repair. Oncostatin-A is a member of the CXC chemokine family. Human PF4 is used for the proof of heparin-induced thrombocytopenia. Furthermore it is used as an inhibitor in the angiogenesis during tumor therapy.
CXCL4 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 70 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 7.8 kDa.
Sterile Filtered white lyophilized powder.
The CXCL4 protein was filtered (0.2µm) and lyophilized from a concentrated solution containing 20mM PB and 1.5M NaCl, pH 7.4.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized CXCL4 in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized CXCL4 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution CXCL4 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.
Greater than 97.0% as determined by:
(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
