Pigment Epithelium-derived Factor
Human, Recombinant (rHuPEDF)
Expressed in E. coli
Cat. No. CRP0870
Lot. No. (See product label)
Description: PEDF is a noninhibitory serpin with
properties. It is a 50 kDa glycoprotein produced and secreted
in many tissues throughout the body. A major component of
the anti-angiogenic action of PEDF is the induction of
apoptosis in proliferating endothelial cells. In addition, PEDF
is able to inhibit the activity of angiogenic factors such as
VEGF and FGF-2. The neuroprotective effects of PEDF are
achieved through suppression of neuronal apoptosis induced
by peroxide, glutamate, or other neurotoxins. The recent
identification of a lipase-linked cell membrane receptor for
PEDF (PEDF-R) that binds to PEDF with high affinity should
facilitate further elucidation of the underlying mechanisms of
this pluripotent serpin. To date, PEDF-R is the only signaling
receptor known to be used by a serpin family member.
Amino-Acid Sequence: 400 aa (The first 52 amino acid is:
M. W. : 44,500 Da
Recombinant: Expressed in E. coli
Purity: >95% by SDS-PAGE and HPLC analyses.
Formulation: Lyophilized from a 0.2mm filtered
concentrated (1.0mg/ml) solution in 20mM PB, pH7.4,
Endotoxin: Less than 1EU/mg of rHuPEDF as determined
by LAL method.
Reconstitution: We recommend that this vial be briefly
centrifuged 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. Further dilutions should be
made in appropriate buffered solutions.
Storage: This lyophilized preparation is stable for several
weeks at 2-8°C, but should be kept at –20°C for long term
storage, preferably desiccated. Upon reconstitution, the
preparation is stable for up to one week at 2-8°C. For
maximal stability, apportion the reconstituted preparation into
working aliquots and store at –20° C to –70° C. Avoid
repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
