Introduction

Inhibins are dimeric peptide hormones produced by female ovarian granulose cells and male Sertoli cells as well as a variety of other tissues. Inhibins have two isoforms, A and B, with the same alpha subunit but different beta subunits. Inhibin A is a dimer of alpha and beta A subunits, inhibin B is a dimer of alpha and beta B subunits.
Inhibins are thought to inhibit the production of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) by the pituitary gland. In addition, Inhibins are also thought to play a role in the control of gametogenesis, and embryonic and fetal development.

Description

Activin B human Recombinant produced in Nicotiana benthamiana plant is a beta-B single chain (aa 293-406) containing 123 amino acids (molecular formula C615H910N178O177S12). Activin B is fused to a 10-His-tag at the N-terminal having the total molecular mass of 14kDa and purified by standard chromatographic techniques.

Source

Nicotiana benthamiana plant

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.

Formulation

Lyophilized from 1mg/ml solution in 0.05M Tris-HCl buffer pH 7.4.

Solubility

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

Stability

Lyophilized Activin B although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution Activin B 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 Analysis by SDS-PAGE.

Biological Activity

The biological activity of Activin B is measured by its ability to inhibit mouse plasmacytoma cell line (MPC-11) cells proliferation. EC50 <5ng/ml is required to stimulate a half-maximal response at cytokine saturation. Note: Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
