TESTED APPLICATIONS:
BIOLOGICAL ACTIVITY: The ED50 was determined by its ability to inhibit the proliferation of murine MPC - 11 cells is ≤ 2 ng/mL, corresponding to a specific activity of ≥ 5 x 105 units/mg.
psi-iconProperties
PURITY:Greater than 95% by SDS-PAGE gel and HPLC analyses.

Endotoxin level is less than 0.1 ng per μg (1EU/μg).
PHYSICAL STATE:Lyophilized
STORAGE CONDITIONS:The lyophilized Activin A recombinant protein is stable for at least 2 years from date of receipt at -20˚C. Reconstituted Activin A is stable for at least 3 months when stored in working aliquots with a carrier protein at -20˚C. As with any protein, exposing Activin A recombinant protein to repeated freeze / thaw cycles is not recommended. When working with proteins care should be taken to keep recombinant protein at a cool and stable temperature.

psi-iconBackground and References
BACKGROUND:Activin A is a TGF-β family member that exhibits a wide range of biological activities including regulation of cellular proliferation and differentiation, and promotion of neuronal survival. Elevated levels of Activin A in human colorectal tumors and in post-menopausal woman have been implicated in colorectal and breast cancers, respectively. The biological activities of Activin A can be neutralized by inhibins and by the diffusible TGF-β antagonist, Follistatin. Human Activin A is a 26.0 kDa disulfide-linked homodimer of two β A chains, each containing 116 amino acid residues.
