Technical Data
Stromal Cell Derived Factor 1 alpha, Recombinant, Mouse (SDF1a)
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
Recombinant corresponding to 68aa from mouse Stromal Cell Derived Factor 1 alpha expressed in E. coli.

Molecular Weight:

Biological Activity:
Determined measuring dose-dependent chemotaxis with human peripheral blood monocytes. A concentration range of 50-100ng/ml produced significant chemotaxis. SDF-1 is a CXC chemokine that binds to the chemokine receptor CXCR4. SDF-1 is widely expressed by cells of most tissues, including bone marrow stromal cells. SDF-1 is a chemoattractant for mononuclear cells and CD34+ hematopoietic progenitor cells.

Endotoxin: ~0.1ng/ug

Storage and Stability:
Lyophilized powder may be stored at -20C. Stable for 12 months at -20C. Reconstitute with sterile dH2O. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store 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:
Purity: ~99% (SDS-PAGE, HPLC)
Concentration: Not determined
Form: Supplied as a lyophilized powder in 10 mM acetic acid, carrier free. Reconstitute with sterile dH2O to 0.1-1mg/ml.
