Recombinant Human Erythropoietin-Alpha (EPO)
|Description||EPO is predominantly synthesized and secreted by tubular and juxtatubular capillary, endothelial, and interstitial cells of the kidney. Approximately 10-15% of the total amount of EPO comes from extrarenal sources and is predominantly produced by hepatocytes and Kupffer cells of the liver. Approximately 40% of the molecular mass of EPO is due to its glycosylation. Glycosylation is an important factor determining the pharmacokinetic behaviour of EPO in vivo. Non-glycosylated Epo has an extremely short biological half life. Recombinant Human EPO is a glycosylated protein that runs at approximately 35 kDa owing to its glycosylation.|
|Molecular Weight||20.0 kDa|
|Endotoxin Level||<1.0 EU/μg of recombinant protein as determined by the LAL method|
|Purity||>95% as determined by SDS-PAGE|
|Bioactivity||Activity was determined by the dose-dependent proliferation assay using a factor-dependent human erythroleukemic cell line TF-1 and was found to be less than 0.2ng/ml|
|Formulation||Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS (pH 7)|
|Reconstitution||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.|
|Storage||The lyophilized protein is stable for at least one year from date of receipt at -70°C. Upon reconstitution, this cytokine can be stored in working aliquots at 2° - 8°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.|
|Usage||For research use only. Not for diagnostic or therapeutic use.|
· Endotoxin is generally measured in Endotoxin Units per milliliter (EU/mL).
· For recombinant proteins: EU is reported per microgram of protein.
· One EU = 0.1-0.2 ng endotoxin/µg of protein.
· At abm, we do the LAL chromogenic assays that can detect down to 0.01 EU/ml.
