Protein NOV homolog, NovH, CCN family member 3, nsulin-like growth factor-binding protein 9, IBP-9, IGF-binding protein 9, IGFBP-9, Nephroblastoma-overexpressed gene protein homolog, NOV, CCN3, IGFBP9, NOVH.
Nephroblastoma Overexpressed (NOV) which is encoded by the NOV gene is a part of the CCN (CTGF/CYR61/NOV) family. NOV takes part in reducing tumorgenicity and proliferation of certain cancer cell lines. NOV interacts with numerous proteins and is involved in both internal and external cell signaling. NOV is expressed in particular tumors, including Wilm’s tumor and most nephroblastomas and is also exerts proangiogenic activities.
Nephroblastoma Overexpressed Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 331 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 36.2 kDa. The NOV is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Lyophilized from a 0.2µm filtered concentrated solution in 20mM Tris-HCl, pH 8.6 and 150 mM NaCl.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized NOV in sterile 18M-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized NOV although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution NOV 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:(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
