Specifications

Growth and differentiation factor-associated serum protein-1 (GASP-1) is a secreted inhibitory TGF-beta binding protein that contains multiple protease inhibitor structural domains. It is expressed primarily in the ovary, testis, and brain, and can act as a potent soluble inhibitor of myostatin and GDF-11, but not Activin-A. The GASP-1 gene encodes a 571 amino acid protein that contains a 29 amino acid secretion signal sequence, and multiple identifiable structural features, including a WAP domain, a follistatin/Kazal domain, an immunoglobulin domain, two tandem Kunitz domains, and a netrin domain. Recombinant human GASP-1 is a 542 amino acid protein that migrates at an apparent molecular weight of approximately 55-66kD by SDS-PAGE analysis under non-reducing conditions.
Catalog #143338
Biological ActivityDetermined by its ability to inhibit human Myostatin (GDF-8) activity in MCP-11 cells. The ED50 for this effect is 0.0025-0.0040ug/ml in the presence of 5ng/ml of human Myostatin (GDF-8).

Quality ControlVerified by N-terminal and Mass Spectrometry analyses (when applicable).
Endotoxin<0.1ng/ug of protein (<1EU/ug).
Protein ContentVerified by UV Spectroscopy and/or SDS-PAGE gel.
Storage and StabilityStore lyophilized products at -20°C. For reconstituted solutions of most products, we recommend short-term storage at 4°C. For longer term storage the protein solution should be stored with a carrier protein (eg. 0.1% BSA) in working aliquots and stored frozen at -20°C. Additional freeze/thaw cycles may cause some denaturation of the protein.
SourceCHO cells
Purity95% by SDS-PAGE gel and HPLC analyses.
FormSupplied as a lyophilized powder.
