Cerebral neurotrophic factor, arginine-rich, mutated in early stage tumors-like 1, Conserved neurotrophic factor, ARMET-like protein 1, ARMETL1.
CDNF is a member of the ARMET family and acts as a trophic factor for neurons. CDNF inhibits the (6-OHDA)-induced degeneration of neurons. When CDNF controlled after 6-OHDA-lesioning, it reestablishes the function and inhibits the degeneration of neurons in substantia nigra. CDNF is universally expressed in neuronal and non-neuronal tissues. The highest levels in the brain are found in the optic nerve and corpus callosum.
CDNF Human Recombinant produced in E.coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 161 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 18.5kDa.
The CDNF is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
CDNF protein was lyophilized from a 0.2µm filtered concentrated solution in 1xPBS, pH 7.4.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized CDNF in sterile 18M-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized CDNF although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution CDNF 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 96.0% as determined by:
(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
