EGF is a magnesiotropic hormone involved in the regulation of renal magnesium reabsorption via activation of the magnesium permeable channel TRPM6 (Muallem and Moe 2007).
The effects of EGF are initiated through tyrosine kinase activity, following the binding of EGF to the extracellular domain of the EGF receptor (EGFR), which results in the triggering of several signal transduction pathways, including the JAK/STAT and P13K/AKT pathways.
- Target Species
- Product Form
- Purified recombinant protein – lyophilized
- Reconstitute to 1.0 mg/ml by adding 1.0 ml H2O. Care should be taken during reconstitution as the protein may appear as a film at the bottom of the vial. Bio-Rad recommend that the vial is gently mixed after reconstitution. Do not vortex.
- Purified recombinant EGF expressed in E.coli
- Preservative Stabilisers
- None present
- The ED50 as determined by a cell proliferation assay using BALB/c 3T3 cells is ≤ 0.1 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of ≥ 1 x 107 units/mg
- >98% by SDS PAGE and HPLC analysis
- Approx. Protein Concentrations
- 1.0 mg/ml after reconstitution
- Protein Molecular Weight
- 6 kDa
- Prior to reconstitution store at -20oC. Following reconstitution store at -20oC.
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
This product should be stored undiluted. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the protein. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
