This product is specific for human EGF (Epidermal Growth Factor), a potent stimulator and regulator of the proliferation of epidermal and epithelial cells, which is expressed by a variety of cells.
The effects of EGF are initiated through tyrosine kinase activity, following the binding of EGF to the extracellular domain of the 170kDa EGF receptor (EGFR), which also binds other EGF-like ligands with high affinity, including TGF-α, VGF (vaccinia virus growth factor) and Betacellulin, produced by certain tumour cells. Receptor activation through EGF binding triggers several signal transduction pathways, including the JAK/STAT and P13K/AKT pathways.
Prior to reconstitution store at +4 °C.
After reconstitution store at -20 °C.
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
If stored in this manner, this product is stable for 12 months after receipt.
