CERTIFICATE OF ANALYSIS AND DATA SHEET

CATALOG #: 7052

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION:
Myostatin (GDF-8), a member of the TGFbeta superfamily, is a potent and specific negative regulator of skeletal muscle mass. In serum, myostatin circulates as part of a latent complex containing myostatin propeptide and/or follistatin-related gene. The myostatin propeptide is known to bind and inhibit myostatin in vitro. This interaction is relevant in vivo, with a majority (>70%) of myostatin in serum bound to its propeptide. The myostatin propeptide is negative regulator of myostatin in vivo. Recombinant Human Myostatin Propeptide is a 27.8 kDa protein consisting of 244 amino acid residues.

SOURCE:
E.coli.

FORMULATION:
Lyopohilized with no additives.

RECONSTITUTION:
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized product with sterile water at a concentration of 0.1 mgs/ml, which can be further diluted into other aqueous solutions.

STABILITY:
Lyophilized product is very stable at -20 degrees. Reconstituted material should be aliquoted and frozen at -20. It is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA) for long term storage.

PURITY:
Greater than 95% as determined by: Analysis by RP-HPLC. Reducing and non-reducing SDS-PAGE.

PROTEIN CONTENT DETERMINED BY:
UV spectroscopy at 280 nm. Analysis by RP-HPLC calibrated against a known standard. Quantitation on SDS-PAGE against a known standard.
