Technical Data
Artemin, Recombinant, Human (GFRalpha3-RET Ligand)
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
Artemin Human Recombinant produced in E. coli is a disulfide-linked homodimer, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 2 x 113 amino acids and having a total molecular mass of 2.42kD. Artemin is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Stem cell factor Artemin Human Recombinant expressed in E. coli. Amino Acid Sequence of the first five N-terminal amino acids was determined and was found to be Ala-Gly-Gly-Pro-Gly.

Biological Activity:
The Biological activity is calculated by it's ability to promote survival and neurite outgrowth and dorsal root ganglion neurons.

Storage and Stability:
Lyophilized Artemin although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18C. Upon reconstitution should be stored at 4C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

Molecular Weight:
Source: E. coli
Purity: 98.0% as determined by RP-HPLC or SDS-PAGE.
