This product is an active protein and may elicit a biological response in vivo, handle with caution.
ReconstitutionBriefly centrifuge the vial prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Reconstitute in sterile distilled water or aqueous buffer containing 0.1% BSA to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml. Stock solutions should be apportioned into working aliquots and stored at -20°C to -70°C. Further dilutions should be made in appropriate buffered solutions.
- Cardiophin 1
- Cardiotrophin I
FunctionInduces cardiac myocyte hypertrophy in vitro. Binds to and activates the ILST/gp130 receptor.
