|Greater than 95.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
|The Rat Fibronectin was lyophilized from a concentrated 1mg/ml solution containing 20mM Tris Cl pH-7.5.
|Storage condition :
|Store the lyophilized fibronectin at 4°C. Upon reconstitution fibronectin should be stored at 4°C for 2 weeks and for future use below -18°C.Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
Source : Rat Plasma. Plasma fibronectin level is elevated in severe coronary artery disease. Increased plasma fibronectin levels are related with venous thromboembolism (VTE) particularly in males, and extend the probable association between biomarkers and risk factors for arterial atherothrombosis and VTE. Fibronectin plays a role in several cellular processes, including tissue repair, embryogenesis, blood clotting, and cell migration/adhesion. Fibronectin consists in two main forms: 1) as an insoluble glycoprotein dimer that serves as a linker in the etracellular matrix and 2) as a soluble disulphide linked dimer found in the plasma. The plasma form is produced by hepatocytes, and the ECM form is synthesized by fibroblasts, chondrocytes, endothelial cells, macrophages, as well as certain epithelial cells. Fibronectin alos takes part as a general cell adhesion molecule by anchoring cells to collagen or proteoglycan substrates. Fibronectin organizes cellular interaction with the ECM by binding to different components of the extracellular matrix and to membrane-bound Fibronectin receptors on cell surfaces. Molecular Weight 220kDa.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Rat Fibronectin in sterile 18M-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
