| Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Human Recombinant, VEGF Human, 10ug|
Amino acid sequence
The sequence of the first five N-terminal amino acids was determined and was found to be Ala-Pro-Met-Ala-Glu.
Determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of the proliferation of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC) using a concentration range of 1-8ng/ml corresponding to a Specific Activity of 125,000-1,000,000IU/mg.
Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a double, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 165 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 38231 Dalton.
The VEGF is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
The protein was lyophilized from a concentrated (1mg/ml) solution 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 0.2875 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 VEGF as a Reference Standard.
Greater than 98.0% as determined by(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor in sterile 18M¦¸-cm H2O not less than 100ug/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below
-18¡ãC. Upon reconstitution VEGF 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.
