Novus' biologically active proteins are stringently purified to provide only the safest and most highly effective proteins available. This protein was expressed in E. coli, purified by HPLC, QC tested by SDS-PAGE and Western Blot and validated on appropriate cell lines for bioactivity. All HPLC and bioactivity data is provided for your assurance.
Details of Functionality
FGF18 Protein is fully biologically active when compared to standard. The ED50 as determined by thymidine uptake assay using FGF-receptors transfected BaF3 cells is less than 0.5 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of > 2.0 x 10^6 IU/mg.
>95% pure by SDS-PAGE
Less than 1 EU/ug of endotoxin as determined by LAL method.
21 kDa. Disclaimer note: The observed molecular weight of the protein may vary from the listed predicted molecular weight due to post translational modifications, post translation cleavages, relative charges, and other experimental factors.
Read Publication using NBP2-35296 in the following applications:
Lyophilized from a 0.2 um filtered concentrated solution in PBS, pH 7.4, 500 mM NaCl.
>95% pure by SDS-PAGE
Recommended to centrifuge prior to opening. Reconstitute in sterile distilled water or aqueous buffer containing 0.1% BSA to a concentration of 0.1-1.0mg/mL. Apportion stock solutions into working aliquots and store at <-20C.
This lyophilized preparation is stable at 2-8 degrees C, but should be kept at -20 degrees C for long term storage, preferably desiccated. Upon reconstitution, the preparation is most stable at -20 to -80 degrees C, and can be stored for one week at 2-8 degrees C. For maximal stability, apportion the reconstituted preparation into working aliquots and store at -20 degrees C to -80 degrees C. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
Alternate Names for Recombinant Rat FGF18 Protein
fibroblast growth factor 18
Rat FGF-18 is encoded by the FGF18 gene in rats. By phylogenetic analysis and gene location analysis, FGF-18 is divided into FGF-8 subfamily which has three members FGF-8, FGF-17 and FGF-18. Using FGF knockout mice model, the numbers of this subfamily were testified that have crucial roles of in embryo development. FGF-18-/- mice have decreased expression of osteogenic markers and delayed long-bone ossification. FGF-18 also has significant roles in lung development and has an anabolic effect on cartilage formation. Additionally, it has been shown in vitro that this protein is able to induce neurite outgrowth in PC12 cells. Rat FGF-18 shares 98% amino acid sequence identity with human.
