GH is a member of the somatotropin/prolactin family of hormones which play an important role in growth control. The gene, along with four other related genes, is located at the growth hormone 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 growth hormones, 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 growth hormone locus. Mutations in or deletions of the gene lead to growth hormone deficiency and short stature.
Growth Hormone Bovine Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 191 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 21.8 kDa.
The GH Bovine Recombinant is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
The Bovine Growth Hormone protein was lyophilized from a concentrated (1mg/ml) solution with 4.5mM NaHCO3 adjusted to pH 8-9.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Bovine Growth Hormone in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized Bovine Growth Hormone although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution GH Bovine 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 98.0% as determined by:
(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.

The activity as determined by the PDFP13B9 cells stably transfected with rabbit GH receptors. Bovine GH is also capable of forming a 1:2 complex with the recombinant ovine growth hormone receptor extracellular domain (ECD).
UV spectroscopy at 280 nm using the absorbency value of 0.63 as the extinction coefficient for a 0.1% (1mg/ml) solution. This value is calculated by the PC GENE computer analysis program of protein sequences.
