|Amount :||10 µg|
|Purification :||Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.|
|Content :||Lyophilized from a 0.2µm filtered solution in HCl.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized GDF-7 in sterile 18M-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
|Storage condition :||Lyophilized GDF7 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution GDF-7 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.|

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Growth Differentiation Factor-7 (GDF-7) belongs to the BMP family of TGF-b superfamily proteins. GDF7 elicits its bioactivity via a heterodimeric receptor complex comprised of a type 1 (BMPR-IB) and a type II (BMPR-II or Activin RII) serine/threonine kinase receptor. GDF7 signaling results in the phosphorylation and activation of Smad proteins. GDF-7 is also involved in tendon and ligament formation and repair. In addition, GDF7 regulates bone formation, mesenchymal stem cell differentiation, neuronal differentiation, and axon guidance.
GDF7 Human Recombinant (322-450) produced in E.Coli is a disulfide-linked homodimeric, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 129 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 28kDa.The GDF-7 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
The ED50, as determined by inducing alkaline phosphatase production by mouse ATDC5 cells, is less than 1.25µg/ml.
