Technical Data
Insulin-Like Growth Factor II, Recombinant, Human (Human IGF-II, IGF-II, IGFII, IGFII, IGF2, IGF-2, IGF 2)
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
IGF-II (insulin-like Growth Factor-II) is a polypeptide growth factor that stimulates the proliferation of a wide range of cell types. Human IGF-II is a 7.5kD protein containing 67 amino acid residues.

Endotoxin: <0.1ng/ug

Biological Activity:
The recombinant human IGF-II is biologically active when compared to standard. The ED as determined by competitive binding against plasma-derived IGF-II to human placental membranes is <1.0ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of >1x10e6 units/mg.

Storage and Stability:
Lyophilized powder may be stored at -20C. Stable for 12 months at -20C. Reconstitute with acetic acid. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Reconstituted product is stable for 6 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
