Preparation and Storage

  • Stability and Storage

    Shipped at 4°C. Store at -80°C. Avoid freeze / thaw cycle. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein on reconstitution (0.1% HSA or BSA).

    This product is an active protein and may elicit a biological response in vivo, handle with caution.

  • Reconstitution
    ab116150 should be reconstituted with sterile 5 mM HCl + 50 ug/ml BSA at a concentration of 0.1 mg/ml, which can be further diluted into other aqueous solutions. When reconstituting the product, gently pipette and wash down the sides of the vial to ensure full recovery of the protein into solution.

  • Function
    Multifunctional protein that controls proliferation, differentiation and other functions in many cell types. Many cells synthesize TGFB1 and have specific receptors for it. It positively and negatively regulates many other growth factors. It plays an important role in bone remodeling as it is a potent stimulator of osteoblastic bone formation, causing chemotaxis, proliferation and differentiation in committed osteoblasts.
  • Tissue specificity
    Highly expressed in bone. Abundantly expressed in articular cartilage and chondrocytes and is increased in osteoarthritis (OA). Co-localizes with ASPN in chondrocytes within OA lesions of articular cartilage.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in TGFB1 are the cause of Camurati-Engelmann disease (CE) [MIM:131300]; also known as progressive diaphyseal dysplasia 1 (DPD1). CE is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by hyperostosis and sclerosis of the diaphyses of long bones. The disease typically presents in early childhood with pain, muscular weakness and waddling gait, and in some cases other features such as exophthalmos, facial paralysis, hearing difficulties and loss of vision.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the TGF-beta family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Glycosylated.
    The precursor is cleaved into mature TGF-beta-1 and LAP, which remains non-covalently linked to mature TGF-beta-1 rendering it inactive.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted > extracellular space > extracellular matrix.

Customer reviews and Q&As

Thank you for your enquiry.

I have reviewed with our sources the TGF beta 1 proteins that we have on our catalog. It seems the most suitable would be ab50036 TGF beta 1 protein (Active).

Thank you for contacting us.

I assume you would like to use the protein for functional studies? From the looks of it, all three of them seem to be suitable for Functional Studies, but withinAb50036the endotoxin level has been determined as w...
