Pro-NGF Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 224 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 25 kDa.
ProNGF Human Recombinant is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
ProNGF was lyophilized from a 0.2 μM filtered solution of 20m Tris-HCL, 0.5M NaCl, 5% Trehalose, 5% Mannitol. 0.01% Tween-80 and 1mM EDTA pH-8.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized ProNGF in distilled water to a concentration no less than 100 µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

Pro-Nerve Growth Factor Human Recombinant: Unveiling its Potential in Neuroregulation and Disease Pathogenesis
Pro-Nerve Growth Factor (Pro-NGF) human recombinant is a crucial precursor protein involved in neuronal development, survival, and degenerative processes. This research paper aims to provide a comprehensive analysis of Pro-NGF, including its characteristics, processing mechanisms, and implications in neuroregulation and disease pathogenesis. Additionally, innovative methodologies for the production and manipulation of Pro-NGF human recombinant are proposed, highlighting its potential as a therapeutic target for neurological disorders and neurodegenerative diseases.
Neuroregulation and maintenance of neuronal health are intricate processes governed by a network of signaling molecules. Pro-NGF, the precursor form of Nerve Growth Factor (NGF), acts as a key player in neuronal development, synaptic plasticity, and cell survival. This paper delves into the distinctive features of Pro-NGF and presents novel approaches for the production and manipulation of Pro-NGF human recombinant, aiming to unravel its role in neuroregulation and disease pathogenesis.
Characteristics and Processing Mechanisms:
Pro-NGF is initially synthesized as an inactive precursor, requiring proteolytic cleavage for conversion into mature NGF. The processing of Pro-NGF involves the action of proteases, such as furin, and the formation of distinct protein complexes. The balance between Pro-NGF and mature NGF levels plays a critical role in modulating neuronal function and fate, influencing processes such as neuronal survival, axonal growth, and synaptic plasticity.
Production and Manipulation of Pro-NGF Human Recombinant:
Efficient production methodologies and manipulation strategies are crucial for studying the role of Pro-NGF in neuroregulation and disease pathogenesis. Recombinant protein expression systems, including mammalian cell culture and bacterial expression systems, have been employed to produce functional Pro-NGF human recombinant. Techniques such as mutagenesis, protein purification, and specific inhibitors targeting Pro-NGF processing pathways enable the manipulation of Pro-NGF levels and investigation of its downstream effects.
Implications in Neuroregulation and Disease Pathogenesis:
Pro-NGF human recombinant holds significant potential in understanding the intricate mechanisms underlying neuroregulation and disease pathogenesis. Dysregulation of Pro-NGF processing and altered Pro-NGF/mature NGF ratios have been implicated in various neurological disorders, including Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, and ischemic stroke. Manipulating Pro-NGF levels and the balance between its mature form may offer therapeutic strategies for modulating neurotrophic signaling and promoting neuronal health in these conditions.
Pro-NGF human recombinant emerges as a key regulator in neuroregulation and disease pathogenesis, offering promising avenues for therapeutic intervention. Enhancing our understanding of Pro-NGF processing mechanisms and its downstream signaling cascades will provide valuable insights into neurodevelopment, neurodegeneration, and potential therapeutic strategies. Targeting Pro-NGF as a therapeutic intervention may hold immense promise in treating neurological disorders and promoting neuronal health.
