Recombinant mouse TPO is a monomer protein consisting of 174 amino acid residue subunits, and migrates as an approximately 19 kDa protein under reducing conditions in SDS-PAGE.
>95%, as determined by SDS-PAGE and HPLC.
Biological Activity
The ED(50) was determined by the dose-dependent proliferation of human MO7e cells was found to be less than.0 ng/ml.

Protein Sequence
Endotoxin content was assayed using a LAL gel clot method. Endotoxin level was found to be less than.1 ng/µg(1EU/µg).
Recombinant mouse TPO was lyophilized from a.2 μm filtered PBS solution.
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.
