Beta-NGF Protein, Human (120a.a)

Cat. No.: HY-P70449
COA Handling Instructions

Nerve Growth Factor-β (Beta-NGF; NGF) is a neurotrophic factor that regulates neuronal survival and differentiation. NGF is also a seminal plasma protein involved in ovulation and luteinizing. NGF has potential functions in the female reproductive system to help overcome the current problem of early embryo loss. Beta-NGF Protein, Human (120a.a) is produced by E.coli (S122-A241), with tag free.

Description

Nerve Growth Factor-β (Beta-NGF; NGF) is a neurotrophic factor that regulates neuronal survival and differentiation. NGF is also a seminal plasma protein involved in ovulation and luteinizing. NGF has potential functions in the female reproductive system to help overcome the current problem of early embryo loss[1][2][3]. Beta-NGF Protein, Human (120a.a) is produced by E.coli (S122-A241), with tag free.

Background

Nerve Growth Factor-β (Beta-NGF; NGF) is a basic protein of 118 amino acids which acts are a trophic factor for sensory and sympathetic neurons of the peripheral nervous system, and on cholinergic neurons of the anterior basal cerebrum[1]. NGF involves in the regulation of neuronal survival and differentiation. Elevated levels of NGF are associated with the risk of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The trauma response leads to methylation of DNA nucleotides responsible for NGF expression. NGF levels have shown increased sympathetic fiber density proportional to NGF messenger RNA (mRNA) levels. NGF is also a seminal plasma protein commonly found in mammals. For example, NGF acts as an ovulation stimulating factor in camels and has been shown to have luteinizing effects in bulls. NGF has a potential function in the female reproductive system. For example, NGF plays an important role in ovulation induction, LH release, ovulation, luteal development, progesterone (P4) production, vascularization of luteal body, and gonadotropin response. Application of NGF to cattle enhances steroid production, luteal formation and function by increasing LH release, and leads to increased mRNA expression of markers of pregnancy and development downstream. In addition, the potential luteinizing effect of NGF could help overcome the current problem of early embryo loss[2][3]. The similarity between human and bovine NGF protein sequence was 90.87%. Meanwhile, the similarity rate of human NGF with rat and mouse was 85.89% and 85.06%, respectively.

In Vitro

NGF (human; 100 ng/mL; 5 d) induces a dose-dependent increase in DNA synthesis of B cells[4].

Biological Activity

The cell proliferation assay using TF 1 human erythroleukemic cells has an ED50 value of 0.03-0.3 ng/mL.

Purity

Greater than 95% as determined by reducing SDS-PAGE.

Appearance

Lyophilized powder.

Formulation

Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution of PBS, pH 7.4.

Endotoxin Level

<1 EU/μg, determined by LAL method.

Reconstitution

It is not recommended to reconstitute to a concentration less than 100 μg/mL in ddH2O. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% BSA, 5% HSA, 10% FBS or 5% Trehalose).

Storage & Stability

Stored at -20°C for 2 years. After reconstitution, it is stable at 4°C for 1 week or -20°C for longer (with carrier protein). It is recommended to freeze aliquots at -20°C or -80°C for extended storage.

Shipping

Room temperature in continental US;may vary elsewhere.

Help & FAQs
  • Do most proteins show cross-species activity?

    Species cross-reactivity must be investigated individually for each product. Many human cytokines will produce a nice response in mouse cell lines, and many mouse proteins will show activity on human cells. Other proteins may have a lower specific activity when used in the opposite species.

  • Specific Activity Calculator

The reconstitution calculator equation

Volume (to add to vial) = Mass (in vial) ÷ Desired Reconstitution Concentration

Volume (to add to vial) = Mass (in vial) ÷ Desired Reconstitution Concentration
= ÷

The dilution calculator equation

Concentration (start) × Volume (start) = Concentration (final) × Volume (final)

This equation is commonly abbreviated as: C1V1 = C2V2

Concentration (start) × Volume (start) = Concentration (final) × Volume (final)
× = ×

The specific activity calculator equation

Specific Activity (Unit/mg) = 106 ÷ Biological Activity (ED50)

Specific Activity (Unit/mg) = 106 ÷ Biological Activity (ED50)
Unit/mg = 106 ÷ ng/mL
