DATA SHEET:recombinant Human GRO/MGSA

-Human GRO (MGSA) promotes neutrophil chemotaxis and degranulation. It also stimulates mitogenesis in certain human melanoma cells. Human GRO is an 8 kDa protein containing 73 amino acid residues.


Package Size: 25 micrograms $231.00     $219.00/package 2 or more

                    mini-pack cat#RDI-3011P  $94.00/5ug

                   LARGER SIZES QUOTED ON REQUEST        -inquire for custom sizes/bulk packaging

Supplied: Lyophilized powder with no additives.

Source: E. Coli

Purity: >98% by SDS-Page analysis . Endotoxin < 1EU/ug

Reconstitution: The lyophilized GRO should be reconstituted in sterile water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0mg/ml. Allow set at least 30 minutes at 4 DEG ,tighten cap and rotate to reconstitute any material on sides of vial. If desired, you can centrifuge at 1000 rpm for 1 minute to concentrate volume in bottom of vial.This solution can be diluted into other buffered solutions and stored at 4 DEG C for up to 1 week or stored at -20 DEG C for future use. For most in-vitro applications, GRO exerts its biological activity in the range of 5.0 to 50.0 ng/ml.

Note:If this material is not to be used for coating or labeling (or other applications requiring carrier free material), the addition of 0.1% BSA to dilution buffers or dilution in sterile culture media is recommended to enhance stability and minimize absorption to vial. Ideally, maintain stock >50ug/ml.

Storage: The lyophilized powder is stable at room temperature for a few weeks but it is best stored desiccated at -20 DEG C. Reconstituted GRO should be stored in working aliquots at -20 DEG C. AVOID FREQUENT FREEZE THAW CYCLES.

Reactivity: Determined by its ability to chemoattract human neutrophils using a concentration range of 10.0- 50.0ng/ml.
