DescriptionHsp70 Peptide. Natural killer (NK) cell activator
- Hsp70 Peptide
Hsp70 Peptide. Natural killer (NK) cell activator. TKD peptide is a partial hsp70 sequence (TKDNNLLGRFELSG - aa. 450-463) and has identical effects on NK cells as full-length Hsp70 protein, being able to stimulate the cytolytic and proliferative activity of NK cells at equivalent concentrations to full-length Hsp70 protein. Incubation of peripheral blood lymphocyte cells with TKD peptide plus low-dose interleukin 2 (IL-2) enhances the cytolytic activity of NK cells against Hsp70 membrane-positive tumors, in vitro and in vivo.
Storage instructionsStore at -20°C. Store under desiccating conditions. The product can be stored for up to 12 months.
Solubility overviewSoluble in water
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20°C. Generally, these will be useable for up to one month. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.
