|Description||NT-3 is a neurotrophic factor structurally related to β-NGF, BDNF, and NT-4. These proteins belong to the cysteine-knot family of growth factors that assume stable dimeric structures. NT-3 is expressed by neurons of the central nervous systems and can signal through the trk receptors. NT-3 promotes the growth and survival of nerve and glial cells. The amino acid sequences of human, murine and rat NT-3 are identical. Recombinant human NT-3 is a noncovalently linked homodimer, of two 13.6 kDa polypeptide monomers (240 total amino acid residues). Human and M NT-3 sequences are identical.|
|BiologicalActivity||The ED50 as determined by the dose-dependent induction of choline acetyl transferase activity in rat basal forebrain primary septal cell cultures was found to be in the range of 20-50 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||Animal-Free Recombinant Human NT-3 is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
