Recombinant Human NT-3 Protein

  • Purity
    >97%, by SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions and visualized by silver stain.
  • Endotoxin Level
    <0.10 EU per 1 μg of the protein by the LAL method.
  • Activity
    Measured in a cell proliferation assay using BaF‑TrkB‑BD mouse pro‑B cells transfected with TrkB. The ED50 for this effect is typically 1-10 ng/mL.
  • Source
    Spodoptera frugiperda, Sf 21 (baculovirus)-derived Tyr139-Thr257 (K196R)
  • Accession #
  • N-terminal Sequence
    Analysis
    Tyr139
  • Predicted Molecular Mass
    13.7 kDa
Carrier Free
What does CF mean?
CF stands for Carrier Free (CF). We typically add Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) as a carrier protein to our recombinant proteins. Adding a carrier protein enhances protein stability, increases shelf-life, and allows the recombinant protein to be stored at a more dilute concentration. The carrier free version does not contain BSA.
What formulation is right for me?
In general, we advise purchasing the recombinant protein with BSA for use in cell or tissue culture, or as an ELISA standard. In contrast, the carrier free protein is recommended for applications, in which the presence of BSA could interfere.
267-N3
 
267-N3/CF
Formulation Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with BSA as a carrier protein.
Formulation Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS.

Data Images
1 µg/lane of Recombinant Human NT-3 was resolved with SDS-PAGE under reducing (R) conditions and visualized by silver staining, showing a single band at 14 kDa.
Recombinant Human NT-3 (Catalog # 267-N3) stimulates cell proliferation in the BaF-TrkB-BD mouse pro-B cell line transfected with TrkB. The ED50 for this effect is typically 1-10 ng/mL.
Background: NT-3

Neurotrophin-3 (NT-3) is a member of the NGF family of neurotrophic factors (also named neurotrophins) that are required for the differentiation and survival of specific neuronal subpopulations in both the central as well as the peripheral nervous systems. The neurotrophin family is comprised of at least four proteins including NGF, BDNF, NT-3, and NT-4/5. These secreted cytokines are synthesized as prepropeptides that are proteolytically processed to generate the mature proteins. All neurotrophins have six conserved cysteine residues that are involved in the formation of three disulfide bonds and all share approximately 55% sequence identity at the amino acid level. Similarly to NGF, bioactive NT-3 is predicted to be a non-covalently linked homodimer.

The NT-3 cDNA encodes a 257 amino acid residue precursor protein with a signal peptide and a proprotein that are cleaved to yield the 119 amino acid residue mature NT-3. The amino acid sequence of mature NT-3 is identical in human, mouse and rat. NT-3 transcripts have been detected in the cerebellum, hippocampus, placenta, heart, skin, and skeletal muscle. NT-3 primarily activates the TrkC tyrosine kinase receptor. In addition, NT-3 can activate Trk and TrkB kinase receptors in certain cell systems. NT-3 can also bind with low affinity to the low affinity NGF receptor.
