Technical Data
Inhibin, beta A, Recombinant, Human
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
Recombinant Inhibin beta A chain comprises a 116 amino acid fragment (311-426) corresponding to the mature Inhibin beta A chain protein and is expressed in E. coli with an amino-terminal hexahistidine tag.

Inhibins are dimeric peptide hormones produced by female ovarian granulose cells and male Sertoli cells as well as a variety of other tissues. Inhibins have two isoforms, A and B, with the same alpha subunit but different beta subunits. Inhibin A is a dimer of alpha and beta A subunits, inhibin B is a dimer of alpha and beta B subunits. Inhibins are thought to inhibit the production of follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) by the pituitary gland. In addition, inhibins are also thought to play a role in the control of gametogenesis, and embryonic and foetal development.

Suitable for use in ELISA, Dot Blot, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
