Erythropoietin, erythropoietin isoform 1 precursor, Epo.
Erythropoietin or EPO is a hormone (glycoprotein), part of the type I cytokine group of proteins. EPO is found mainly in the kidney tissue, produced from fibroblast-like cortical interstitial cells near the proximal tubules. EPO is also present in the blood, where it acts as red cell production regulator, by the promotion of differentiation of erythroid and thereby starts hemoglobin synthesis. Furthermore, EPO has neuroprotective activity towards brain injuries & anti-apoptotic activity in different tissues.
EPO Mouse Recombinant produced in Baculovirus is a single glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 176 amino acids (27-192 aa) and having a molecular mass of 19.8kDa.
EPO is fused to a 9 amino acid His tag at C-terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sf9, Baculovirus cells.
EPO Mouse protein (0.25mg/ml) contains 10% glycerol and Phosphate-Buffered Saline (pH 7.4).
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Measured in a cell proliferation assay using TF-1 human erythroleukemic cells. The ED50 range ≤ 2ng/ml.
