Protein Type
Biological Significance
NT-3 is a neurotrophic factor structurally related to beta-NGF, BDNF, and NT-4. These proteins belong to the cysteine-knot family of growth factors that assume stable dimeric structures. NT-3 is expressed by neurons of the central nervous systems and can signal through the trk receptors. NT-3 promotes the growth and survival of nerve and glial cells. The amino acid sequences of human, Mouse and rat NT-3 are identical.
The ED50 as determined by the dose-dependent induction of choline acetyl transferase activity in rat basal forebrain primary septal cell cultures was found to be in the range of 20-50 ng/ml.
Endotoxin Levels
Endotoxin level is less than 0.1 ng per ug (1 EU/ug).
Expression System
E Coli
Preparation and Storage
Store at 4 degree C until reconstitution. Following reconstitution aliquot and freeze at -20 degree C for long term storage. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
Other Notes
Small volumes of NT3 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.

NCBI Summary for NT3
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the neurotrophin family, that controls survival and differentiation of mammalian neurons. This protein is closely related to both nerve growth factor and brain-derived neurotrophic factor. It may be involved in the maintenance of the adult nervous system, and may affect development of neurons in the embryo when it is expressed in human placenta. NTF3-deficient mice generated by gene targeting display severe movement defects of the limbs. The mature peptide of this protein is identical in all mammals examined including human, pig, rat and mouse. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
UniProt Comments for NT3
NT-3: Seems to promote the survival of visceral and proprioceptive sensory neurons. Belongs to the NGF-beta family. 2 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.
