Bovine growth hormone Cat. no. GHP-27 GENE ID 280804

Recombinant bovine growth hormone produced in E. coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 191 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 21833 Dalton. Predicted pI=7.81. Recombinant bovine growth hormone is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
E. coli
Physical Appearance:
White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
The recombinant bovine growth hormone was lyophilized from a concentrated (1mg/ml) solution with 0.0045 M NaHCO3 previously adjusted pH 8-9.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized recombinant bovine growth hormone in 0.4% NaHCO3 or water adjusted to pH 9, not less than 100µg recombinant bovine growth hormone per ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions, preferably in a presence of a carrier protein such as BSA or similar.
Lyophilized recombinant bovine growth hormone although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18C. Upon reconstitution of recombinant bovine growth hormone and filter sterilization recombinant bovine growth hormone can be stored at 4C, pH 9 for up to 4 weeks. For long term storage and more diluted solutions it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
The purity of recombinant bovine growth hormone is geater than 98.0% as determined by:
(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
(b) Gel filtration at non denaturing conditions using 25 nM Tris-HCl + 150 nM NaCl, pH 8.
(c) Analysis by reducing and non-reducing SDS-PAGE Silver Stained gel.
Amino Acid Sequence:
The sequence of the first five N-terminal amino acids of recombinant bovine growth hormone was determined and was found to be Ala-Phe-Pro-Ala-Met.
Dimers and Aggregates:
Rrecombinant bovine growth hormone content of dimers is less than 5% as determined by gel filtration chromatography.
Biological Activity:
PLR’s recombinant bovine growth hormone is fully biologically active when compared to World Health Organization (WHO) reference standard using in vitro bioassay in PDF-P1 3B9 cells stably transfected with rabbit GH receptors. Rcombinant bovine growth hormoneis also capable of forming a 1:2 complex with the recombinant ovine growth hormone receptor extracellular domain (ECD).
Less than 0.05 ng/µg (IEU/µg) of recombinant bovine growth hormone
Protein content:
Protein quantitation of recombinant bovine growth hormone was carried out by two independent methods:
UV spectroscopy at 280 nm using the absorbency value of 0.63 as the extinction coefficient for a 0.1% (1mg/ml) solution. This value is calculated by DNAman computer analysis program of protein sequences.
PLR's recombinant bovine growth hormone can be used for research purpose only
