Technical Data
Neurturin, Recombinant, Human (NTN)
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
Description : Human Neurturin (NTN) and Human GDNF comprise a family of TGF-beta related neurotrophic factor which have trophic influences on a variety of neuronal populations. Neurturin
promotes the survivability of certain sympathetic and sensory neurons through interaction with distinct set of GDNF-like receptors. Recombinant human Neurturin is a homodimeric 23.6kD protein consisting of two identical subunits each containing 103 amino acid residues.

Biological Activity:
Human Neurturin at a concentration of 100ng/ml will support the
survival of 65% of newborn rat sympathetic neurons.

Storage and Stability:
Lyophilized powder may be stored at -20C. Stable for 12 months at -20C. Reconstitute with ddH2O. Aliquot and store at -20C. Reconstituted product is stable for 6 months at -20C.
