The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Purity70 - 90% by HPLC.
- First try to dissolve a small amount of peptide in either water or buffer. The more charged residues on a peptide, the more soluble it is in aqueous solutions. - If the peptide doesn’t dissolve try an organic solvent e.g. DMSO, then dilute using water or buffer. - Consider that any solvent used must be compatible with your assay. If a peptide does not dissolve and you need to recover it, lyophilise to remove the solvent. - Gentle warming and sonication can effectively aid peptide solubilisation. If the solution is cloudy or has gelled the peptide may be in suspension rather than solubilised. - Peptides containing cysteine are easily oxidised, so should be prepared in solution just prior to use.

Transforming growth factor beta-1-binding protein 1
Transforming growth factor beta-1-masking protein large subunit
FunctionMay be involved in the assembly, secretion and targeting of TGFB1 to sites at which it is stored and/or activated. May play critical roles in controlling and directing the activity of TGFB1. May have a structural role in the extra cellular matrix (ECM).
Tissue specificityIsoform Long is found in fibroblasts.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the LTBP family. Contains 18 EGF-like domains. Contains 4 TB (TGF-beta binding) domains.
DomainAssociates covalently with small latent TGF-beta complex via domain TB 3.
Post-translational modificationsContains hydroxylated asparagine residues. Isoform Short N-terminus is blocked. The iron and 2-oxoglutarate dependent 3-hydroxylation of aspartate and asparagine is (R) stereospecific within EGF domains.
