AI790464, Pro-epidermal growth factor, URG.
Pro-Epidermal Growth Factor Isoform 1 or EGF, is a globular peptide (77aa residues) which includes three intra molecular disulfide bonds. This protein acts as a growth factor that mediates the growth and proliferation of different epithelial & epidermal cells. Among other processes that EGF is part of are inhibition of gastric secretion and wound healing. EGF is a ligand for class I tyrosine kinase receptor (c-erbB).
EGF Mouse Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 77 amino acids (977-1029 a.a) and having a molecular mass of 8.6kDa.EGF is fused to a 24 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
EGF protein solution (0.25mg/ml) contains 10% glycerol, 20mM Tris-HCl (pH 8.0), 0.1M NaCl & 2mM DTT.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
