|Description||CNTF is a potent neural factor that was originally characterized as a vital factor for the survival of chick ciliary neurons in vitro. CNTF is also important for the survival of other neural cell types including primary sensory neurons, motor neurons, basal forebrain neurons and type 2 astrocytes. CNTF is highly conserved across species and exhibits cross-species bioactivity. Recombinant rat CNTF is synthesized as a 199 amino acid polypeptide (22.7 kDa) lacking a hydrophobic N-terminal signal for secretion.|
|BiologicalActivity||Determined by its ability to stimulate proliferation of human TF-1 cells using a concentration range of 25.0-35.0 ng/ml.|
|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 Rat CNTF is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
