Scatter Factor (SF), Hepatopoietin (HPTA), HGF, HGFB, F-TCF.
Hepatocyte Growth Factor (HGF) is a multifunctional growth factor which regulates both cell growth and cell motility. It exerts a strong mitogenic effect on hepatocytes and primary epithelial cells. HGF synergizes with Interleukin-3 and GM-CSF to stimulate colony formation of hematopoietic progenitor cells in vitro and may, therefore, also modulate hematopoiesis.
HGF Human Recombinant produced in HEK cells is a glycosylated disulfide-linked heterodimer, containing 697 a.a. (Gln-32 to Ser-728) having a total molecular weight of 80kDa.
The HGF is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
The HGF was lyophilized from a solution (1mg/ml) containing 10mM Sodium phosphate, 150mM NaCl, 0.01% Tween 80 and 100mM L-Arginine, pH 6.5.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Hepatocyte Growth Factor in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized HGF although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution HGF 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 90.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
The activity was measured in a cell proliferation assay using 4MBr-5 rhesus monkey epithelial cells (ATCC CCL-208). The EC50 for this effect is typically 20-40ng/ml.
