Human Cardiotrophin-1 (CT-1) is a member of the leukemia inhibitory/ciliary neurotrophic
factor/Oncostatin M/interleukin-6/interleukin-11 family of cytokines. Cardiotrophin-1 affects
cells through interaction with the gp 130 receptor subunit. Recombinant human Cardiotrophin-
1 is a 22.5kD protein containing 200aa residues.

Recombinant corresponding to human Cardiotrophin 1 expressed in E. coli.
