Recombinant Human Epidermal Growth Factor (Human EGF)
Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) is a small growth factor containing 53 amino acid residues capable of stimulating the proliferation of both mesenchymal and epithelial cells. The mature protein is much smaller, only 53 aa, and is generated by proteolytic cleavage of the EGF domain proximal to the transmembrane region. EGF is well conserved across mammals with mature human EGF 70% identical to mature mouse and rat EGF. EGF and fibroblast growth factor 2 (FGF-2) induce the proliferation of neural precursor cells isolated from specific regions of the embryonic and adult brain. EGF and somatomedin C-supplemented medium was shown to be capable of replacing the progression activity of 5% platelet-poor plasma (PPP) for competent density-inhibited BALB/c-3T3 cells. Biological activities ascribed to EGF include epithelial development, angiogenesis, inhibition of gastric acid secretion, fibroblast proliferation, and colony formation of epidermal cells in culture.

> 95% by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analyses.
The ED50 as determined by a cell proliferation assay using murine Balb/c 3T3 cells is less than 1 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of > 1.0 × 106 IU/mg. Fully biologically active when compared to standard.
Less than 1 EU/μg of rHuEGF as determined by LAL method.
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered concentrated solution in PBS, pH 7.4.
We recommend that this vial be briefly centrifuged prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Reconstitute in sterile distilled water or aqueous buffer containing 0.1% BSA to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. Stock solutions should be apportioned into working aliquots and stored at ≤ -20℃. Further dilutions should be made in appropriate buffered solutions.
Shipping and Storage
The products are shipped with ice pack and can be stored at -20℃ to -80℃ for 1 year.
Recommend to aliquot the protein into smaller quantities when first used and avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
