Epidermal Growth Factor Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 53 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 6.2kDa. The EGF is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
EGF was lyophilized from a concentrated (1mg/ml) solution containing 0.1% TFA (Trifluoroacetic Acid).
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Amino acid sequence
The ED50 as determined by a cell proliferation assay using murine Balb/c 3T3 cells is less than 0.1ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of 1.0x108 IU/mg.
