Human Activin A Protein

产品信息(Product Info)

Recombinant Human Activin A Protein is expressed from HEK293 without tag.
It contains Gly311-Ser426 [Accession | P08476].

分子量大小(Molecular Weight)

The protein has a predicted MW of 12.97 kDa. Due to glycosylation, the protein migrates to 14-15 kDa under reduced (R) condition, and 23-25 kDa under Non reducing (N) condition based on Tris-Bis PAGE result.


> 95% as determined by Tris-Bis PAGE


Less than 0.1EU per μg by the LAL method.


Lyophilized from 0.22μm filtered solution in 4mM HCI. Normally 8% trehalose is added as protectant before lyophilization.


Centrifuge the tube before opening. Reconstituting to a concentration more than 100 μg/ml is recommended. Dissolve the lyophilized protein in 4mM HCI.


-20 to -80°C for 12 months as supplied from date of receipt.
-80°C for 3-6 months after reconstitution.
2-8°C for 2-7 days after reconstitution.
Recommend to aliquot the protein into smaller quantities for optimal storage. Please minimize freeze-thaw cycles.

Activin-A, a member of the TGF-β superfamily, Extensive research over the past decades illuminated fundamental roles for activin-A in essential biologic processes, including embryonic development, stem cell maintenance and differentiation, haematopoiesis, cell proliferation and tissue fibrosis. Activin-A signals through two type I and two type II receptors which, upon ligand binding, activate their kinase activity, phosphorylate the SMAD2 and 3 intracellular signaling mediators that form a complex with SMAD4, translocate to the nucleus and activate or silence gene expression.
