Product Overview

Tag N/A
Host Species Human
Synonym PTN, Heparin Affin Regulatory Protein, HARP, Heparin-binding growth factor-8, HBGF-8, Osteoblast-Specific Factor-1, OSF-1, Heparin-binding growth-associated molecule, HB-GAM, HBNF-1 Heparin-binding brain mitogen, Heparin-binding neurite outgrowth-promoting factor 1, HBBM, NEGF1.
Background Pleiotrophin (Osteoblast-Specific Factor-1, OSF-1) contains 136 amino acid residues. The sequence is very rich in cationicaa (24% of the residues); lysine cluster sequences are found in the N-terminal and C-terminal ends of the structure.The OSF-1 gene was shown by Northern blotting analysis to be expressed in mouse calvarial osteoblast-enriched cells and in mouse brain tissues, but not in thymus, spleen, kidney, liver, lung, testis or heart. Pleiotrophin has the ability to promote adhesion, migration, expansion, and differentiation of human osteoprogenitor cells. In addition to certain types of cancer, the embryonic growth and differentiation factor pleiotrophin is found also in adults in inflammatory diseases. In osteoarthritis, pleiotrophin is especially expressed in early stages, and its concentrations in the synovial fluid could serve as a marker for the progress of the disease. Pleitrophin might be involved in cartilage repair in osteoarthritis, in particular, in earlier stages.
Description Pleiotrophin Human Recombinant expressed in E.coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 136a.a. and having a molecular weight of 15.3kDa.The Pleiotrophin is purified by unique purification methods.

Purity >97.0% as determined by: (a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
Endotoxin <1.0 EU per μg by the LAL method.
Formulation The Pleiotrophin protein was lyophilized from a 0.2µm filtered concentrated solution in PBS, pH 7.4.
Stability Recombinant protein is stable for 12 months at -70°C
Usage For Research Use Only
Storage Lyophilized Pleiotrophin although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution Pleiotrophin should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

Proteins are sensitive to heat, and freeze-drying can preserve the activity of the majority of proteins. It improves protein stability, extends storage time, and reduces shipping costs. However, freeze-drying can also lead to the loss of the active portion of the protein and cause aggregation and denaturation issues. Nonetheless, these adverse effects can be minimized by incorporating protective agents such as stabilizers, additives, and excipients, and by carefully controlling various lyophilization conditions.

Commonly used protectant include saccharides, polyols, polymers, surfactants, some proteins and amino acids etc. We usually add 8% (mass ratio by volume) of trehalose and mannitol as lyoprotectant. Trehalose can significantly prevent the alter of the protein secondary structure, the extension and aggregation of proteins during freeze-drying process; mannitol is also a universal applied protectant and fillers, which can reduce the aggregation of certain proteins after lyophilization.

Our protein products do not contain carrier protein or other additives (such as bovine serum albumin (BSA), human serum albumin (HSA) and sucrose, etc., and when lyophilized with the solution with the lowest salt content, they often cannot form A white grid structure, but a small amount of protein is deposited in the tube during the freeze-drying process, forming a thin or invisible transparent protein layer.

Reminder: Before opening the tube cap, we recommend that you quickly centrifuge for 20-30 seconds in a small centrifuge, so that the protein attached to the tube cap or the tube wall can be aggregated at the bottom of the tube. Our quality control procedures ensure that each tube contains the correct amount of protein, and although sometimes you can't see the protein powder, the amount of protein in the tube is still very precise.
