Optimized DNA sequence encoding Human Hepatocyte Growth Factor alpha chain was expressed in E.Coli.
Native human Hepatocyte Growth Factor is generated by the proteolytic removal of the signal peptide, the molecule has a calculated molecular mass of approximately 22kDa. Recombinant HGF alpha is a non-glycosylated monomer consisting of the alpha chain (463) amino acid residue subunits, and migrates as an approximately 22kDa protein under non-reducing and reducing conditions in SDS-PAGE.

Endotoxin content was assayed using a LAL gel clot method. Endotoxin level was found to be less than.1 ng/µg(1EU/µg).
Recobinant HGF alpha was lyophilized from a.2 μm filtered Tris solution pH7.0.
A quick spin of the vial followed by reconstitution in distilled water to a concentration not less than.1 mg/mL. This solution can then be diluted into other buffers
The lyophilized protein is stable for at least years from date of receipt at -20° C. Upon reconstitution, this cytokine can be stored in working aliquots at° -° C for one month, or at -20° C for six months, with a carrier protein without detectable loss of activity. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
