Related Product Information for LTF recombinant protein

   Custom preparations, technical support, bulk quantities and aliquoting available.

Cell Culture Grade Recombinant Human Lactoferrin: Recombinant Lactoferrin has been shown to enhance the growth of many cell types including intestinal cells, hybrioma cells, HEK, 3TC and osteoblasts. Our product's ability to enhance protein production has been tested in hybridoma and CHO cell lines. The optimum concentration for cell culture varies with the cell line.

Reported effective concentrations for hybridoma cell lines range from 4-500 mg/L. HEK 293, 100-200mg/L. CHO 250-750 mg/L. Other cell lines such as osteoblasts, show effective growth stimulation at concentrations below 1m/liter.

A Cell Culture Growth Factor: Lactoferrin can be added to cell culture media to promote cell growth, improve doubling times, increase cell viability and increase protein production.

An Iron Chelator: Lactoferrin has been used to deliver iron for certain cell culture applications.

A Vaccine Additive: Lactoferrin is sometimes used as an adjuvant for certain vaccines.

Human Health: Lactoferrin has several human health applications, including incorporation in clinical nutrition products, cosmetics, wound care formulations, infant formula and oral hygiene products.

 NCBI Summary for LTF    This gene is a member of the transferrin family of genes and its protein product is found in the secondary granules of neutrophils. The protein is a major iron-binding protein in milk and body secretions with an antimicrobial activity, making it an important component of the non-specific immune system. The protein demonstrates a broad spectrum of properties, including regulation of iron homeostasis, host defense against a broad range of microbial infections, anti-inflammatory activity, regulation of cellular growth and differentiation and protection against cancer development and metastasis. Antimicrobial, antiviral, antifungal and antiparasitic activity has been found for this protein and its peptides. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2014]
