Introduction

Somatostatin (also known as growth hormone inhibiting hormone (GHIH) or somatotropin release-inhibiting hormone (SRIF) is a peptide hormone that regulates the endocrine systemand affects neurotransmission and cell proliferation via interaction with G-protein-coupled somatostatin receptors and inhibition of the release of numerous secondary hormones. Somatostatin has two active forms produced by alternative cleavage of a single preproprotein: one of 14 amino acids, the other of 28 amino acids.

Description

Somatostatin Synthetic is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 14 amino acids, having a molecular mass of 1637.9 Dalton and a Molecular formula of C76H104N18O19S2. The CAS# is 38916-34-6.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.

Formulation

The protein was lyophilized with no additives.

Solubility

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

Stability

Lyophilized SST although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution Somatostatin 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 98.0% as determined by:
(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.

Amino acid sequence

Ala-Gly-Cys-Lys-Asn-Phe- Phe-Trp-Lys-Thr-Phe-Thr-Ser-Cys-OH.
