The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Biological activityThe ED50 was determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of the proliferation of murine Balb/3T3 cells is < 2.0 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of > 500,000 units/mg.
% SDS-PAGE. ab116471 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Purity is greater than 97.0% as determined by RP-HPLC and SDS-PAGE.
Additional notesab116471, although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution ab116471 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

This product is an active protein and may elicit a biological response in vivo, handle with caution.
ReconstitutionIt is recommended to reconstitute in sterile Ultra pure water at not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
FunctionMay be a mediator of localized cell proliferation. As a mitogen it may stimulate cell proliferation and/or angiogenesis.
Tissue specificityIn normal adults, expressed predominantly in the placenta and peripheral blood leukocytes. High levels were detected in carcinomas of the bladder, lung, kidney and colon.
