|Description||Betacellulin is an EGF-related polypeptide growth factor that signals through the EGF receptor. It is produced in several tissues, including the pancreas, small intestine, and in certain tumor cells. Betacellulin is a potent mitogen for retinal pigment epithelial cells and vascular smooth muscle cells. Betacellulin is initially synthesized as a glycosylated 32.0 kDa transmembrane precursor protein, which is processed by proteolytic cleavage to produce the mature sequence. Recombinant murine Betacellulin is a 9.0 kDa monomeric protein, containing 80 amino residues, which comprises the mature EGF homologous portion of the Betacellulin protein.|
|BiologicalActivity||Determined by its ability to stimulate the proliferation of M Balb/3T3 cells. The expected ED50 is ≤ 0.01 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of ≥ 1 x 108 units/mg.|
|Authenticity||Verified by N-terminal and Mass Spectrometry analyses (when applicable).|
|Endotoxin||Endotoxin level is <0.1 ng/ µg of protein (<1EU/ µg).|
|Protein Content||Verified by UV Spectroscopy and/or SDS-PAGE gel.|
|Precautions||Recombinant Murine Betacellulin is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
