Optimized DNA sequence encoding Human Transforming Growth Factor Alpha mature chain was expressed in Escherichia Coli.

Molecular weight:

Native human alpha, generated by the proteolytic removal of the signal peptide and propeptide, the molecule has a calculated molecular mass of approximately 26 kDa.

Recombinant TGF-alpha is a disulfied linked  protein consisting of 50 amino acid residue subunits. TGF-Alpha migrates as an approximately  5.5 kDa protein under reducing conditions in SDS-PAGE.

>95%, as determined by SDS-PAGE and HPLC.

Protein Sequence:
(*)Complete precursor sequence shown, expressed chain highlighted
Biological Activity:
The activity was determined by dose-dependent stimulation of thymidine uptake by BALB/c 3T3 cells, the ED50 was calculated at ≤ 0.2 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of ≥ 5 x 10^6 units/mg.

Endotoxin content was assayed using a LAL gel clot method.
Endotoxin level was found to be less than 0.1 ng/µg(1EU/µg).

Recombinant TGF-A is lyophilized from  0.2 μm filtered solution with no additives.

A quick spin of the vial followed by reconstitution in distilled water to a concentration not less than 0.1 mg/mL. This solution can then be diluted into other buffers.


Upon reconstitution, this cytokine can be stored in working aliquots at 2° - 8° C for one month, or at -20° C for six months.

Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
