Technical Data
RANK, Recombinant, Human (Receptor Activator of NFkB)
Molecular Biology Storage: 4C/-20CShipping: Blue Ice
Human RANK (receptor activator of NF-KappaB), a soluble 20kD protein, comprising the full-length of the TNF-like extracellular domain of RANKL, is a member of the TNFR family, identified as a dentritic cell membrane protein.

0.1ng/ug (1EU/ug)

Reconstitute with sterile dH2O to a concentration of 0.1-1mg/ml. Solution can then be diluted into other aqueous buffers and stored at 4C for 1 week or -20C for future use.

Biological Activity:
Determined by its ability to induce osteoclast formation in RAW264.7 cells using a concentration range of 5.0-10.0 ng/ml
The ED50 as determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of IL-8 production by human PBMC (peripheral blood mononuclear cells) is 10ng/ml.

Storage and Stability:
Lyophilized powder may be stored at 4C for short-term only. Reconstitute to nominal volume by adding sterile dH2O, aliquot and store at -20C. Reconstituted product is stable for 12 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.

Molecular Weight:
Source: Human, recombinant expressed in E. coli
Purity: 98% by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analysis.
Form: Supplied as a lyophilized powder in PBS, pH 7.6.
