The ED50, calculated by the dose-dependant proliferation of murine BALB\C 3T3 cells (measured by 3H-thymidine uptake) is < 1.0ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of 1,000,000U/mg. For most in-vitro applications, IGF-I exerts its biological activity in the concentration range of 0.2-20 ng/ml.
Insulin-Like Growth Factor-I Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 70 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 7655 Dalton.
IGF-I is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
The protein was lyophilized with no additives.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Protein quantitation was carried out by two independent methods
1. UV spectroscopy at 280 nm using the absorbency value of 0.502 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 (IntelliGenetics).
2. Analysis by RP-HPLC, using a calibrated solution of IGF1 as a Reference Standard.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by
(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.

It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized IGF-1 in sterile 18M¦¸-cm H2O not less than 100ug/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18¡ãC. Upon reconstitution IGF1 should be stored at 4¡ãC between 2-7 days and for future use below -18¡ãC.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
