Recombinant Human Transforming Growth Factor β-1/TGFB1 (N-8His)
Recombinant Human Transforming Growth Factor beta 1 is produced by our Mammalian expression system and the target gene encoding Leu30-Ser390 is expressed Bon Opus Cat. #CA72
BackgroundTransforming Growth Factor β-1 (TGFβ-1) is a secreted protein which belongs to the TGF-β family. TGFβ-1 is abundantly expressed in bone, articular cartilage and chondrocytes and is increased in osteoarthritis (OA). TGFβ-1 performs many cellular functions, including the control of cell growth, cell proliferation, cell differentiation and apoptosis. The precursor is cleaved into a latency-associated peptide (LAP) and a mature TGFβ-1 peptide. TGFβ-1 may also form heterodimers with other TGFβ family members. It has been found that TGFβ-1 is frequently upregulated in tumor cells. Mutations in this gene results in Camurati-Engelmann disease.
FormulationLyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution of 50mM Glycine, 50mM NaCl, pH4.0.
