GH is a member of the prolactin family of hormones which play an important role in growth control. The gene, along with four other related genes, is located at the GH locus on chromosome 17 where they are interspersed in the same transcriptional orientation; an arrangement which is thought to have evolved by a series of gene duplications. The five genes share a remarkably high degree of sequence identity. Alternative splicing generates additional isoforms of each of the five GHs, leading to further diversity and potential for specialization. This particular family member is expressed in the pituitary but not in placental tissue as is the case for the other four genes in the GH locus. Mutations in or deletions of the gene lead to GH deficiency and short stature.
Growth Hormone Mouse Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 190 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 22 kDa. Mouse GH is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Mouse Growth Hormone Recombinant contains 20mM Tris-HCl, pH8.0, 150mM NaCl buffer, pH-8.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Growth Hormone Murine in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized GH mouse although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution GH mouse 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 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Recombinant Mouse GH is fully biologically active when compared to standard Human GH which is 3 units/mg.
