E Coli
>98% by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analyses Endotoxin level is <0.1 ng per ug (1EU/ug)
Sterile filtered and lyophilized with no additives
Centrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in ddH2O to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. The solution can then be diluted into other aqueous buffers or store at 4°C for 1 week or -20°C for future use.
Biological activity
Determined by its ability to chemoattract immature human dendritic cells using a concentration of 10-100 ng/mL.
Preparation and Storage
The lyophilized protein is best stored desiccated below 0°C. Reconstituted human BD-2 should be stored at working aliquots at -20°C.
Other Notes
Small volumes of DEFB2 recombinant protein vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.
