Technical Data
RANTES, Recombinant, Mouse (Regulated on Activation, Normal T-cell Expressed and Secreted)
Growth Factors, Cytokines Storage: -20°CShipping: Blue Ice
Recombinant Mouse Rantes produced in E. coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 68 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 7876 Dalton. Recombinant murine Rantes is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

AA Sequence:

Biological Activity:
Recombinant Rantes is fully biologically active when compared to standard. The activity is determined by the ability to chemoattract total human lymphocytes and murine T-cells at a concentration between 1-10ng/ml.

Storage and Stability:
Store desiccated below -20°C. Upon reconstitution, the liquid can be stored at °4C between 2-7 days and for future use, below -20°C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.

Molecular Weight:
Source: E. coli
Purity: 95% as determined by RP-HPLC and SDS-PAGE. Endotoxin: 0.1ng/ug (1EU/ug).
Form: Supplied as a lyophilized powder without additives. Reconstitute with sterile ddH2O to a concentration 0.1mg/ml. Working dilutions can be made in aqueous buffer.
