Human PEDF Recombinant Protein Lyophilized from Innovative Research has been recombinantly produced in E. coli. This is a Lyophilized protein buffered in with a purity of Greater than 90% by SDS-PAGE gel and HPLC analyses.
Endotoxin level is less than 0.1 ng per and#956;g (1EU/and#956;g)..
- Species: Human
- Target: SERPINF1
Purity: Greater than 90% by SDS-PAGE gel and HPLC analyses.
Endotoxin level is less than 0.1 ng per and#956;g (1EU/and#956;g).
- Source: E. coli
- Storage Conditions: The lyophilized PEDF recombinant protein is stable for at least 2 years from date of receipt at -20°C. Reconstituted PEDF is stable for at least 3 months when stored in working aliquots with a carrier protein at -20°C. As with any protein, exposing PEDF recombinant protein to repeated freeze / thaw cycles is not recommended. When working with proteins care should be taken to keep recombinant protein at a cool and stable temperature.
PEDF is a noninhibitory serpin with neurotrophic, anti-angiogenic, and anti-tumorigenic properties. It is a 50 kDa glycoprotein produced and secreted in many tissues throughout the body. A major component of the anti-angiogenic action of PEDF is the induction of apoptosis in proliferating endothelial cells. In addition, PEDF is able to inhibit the activity of angiogenic factors such as VEGF and FGF-2. The neuroprotective effects of PEDF are achieved through suppression of neuronal apoptosis induced by peroxide, glutamate, or other neurotoxins. The recent identification of a lipase-linked cell membrane receptor for PEDF (PEDF-R) that binds to PEDF with high affinity (1) should facilitate further elucidation of the underlying mechanisms of this pluripotent serpin. To date, PEDF-R is the only signaling receptor known to be used by a serpin family member. The unique range of PEDF activities implicate it as a potential therapeutic agent for the treatment of vasculature related neurodegenerative diseases such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR). PEDF also has the potential to be useful in the treatment of various angiogenesis-related diseases including a number of cancers. Recombinant PEDF is a 44.5 kDa non-glycosylated protein containing 400 amino acid residues. (1) Notari, I. et al. J Biol Chem., Vol. 281, 38022-38037.
