Activin and Inhibin are members of the TGF-beta superfamily of cytokines and are involved in a wide range of biological processes including tissue morphogenesis and repair, fibrosis, inflammation, neural development, hematopoiesis, reproductive system function, and carcinogenesis. Activin A is strongly expressed in wounded skin, and overexpression of Activin A in epidermis of transgenic mice improves wound healing and enhances scar formation. Activin A also regulates the morphogenesis of branching organs such as the prostate, lung, and kidney. There is also evidence showed that lack of Activin A during development results in neural developmental defects.

Escherichia coli
Animal-free reagent and laboratory
Manufactured and tested under GMP guideline

Endotoxin level:
<0.1 EU per 1 μg of the protein by the LAL method.

Measure by its ability to induce hemoglobin expression in K562 cells. The ED50 for this effect is <0.85 ng/mL.
The specific activity of recombinant human Activin A is approximately >1.4 x 103 IU/mg.

>95% as determined by SDS-PAGE. Purified by Ni-NTA chromatography.

The protein was lyophilized from a solution containing 0.1% sarkosyl in 1X PBS, pH 8.0.

It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized protein in sterile H2O to a concentration not less than 100 μg/mL and incubate the stock solution for at least 20 min to ensure sufficient re-dissolved.

Lyophilized protein should be stored at -20°C. This product is stable for one year upon receipt, when handled and stored as instructed. Upon reconstitution, protein aliquots should be stored at -20°C or -80°C. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.

Please use within one month after protein reconstitution.
