<0.01 EU per 1 μg of the protein by the LAL method.
Measured by its ability to inhibit the IL-4-dependent proliferation of HT‑2 mouse T cells. Tsang, M. et al. (1995) Cytokine 7:389. The ED50 for this effect is 0.01-0.04 ng/mL. The specific activity of recombinant human TGF-beta 3 is approximately 2.2 x 104 IU/μg, which is calibrated against recombinant human TGF-beta 3 WHO International Standard (NIBSC code: 09/234).

Manufactured and tested under current Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) guidelines.
GMP-grade Recombinant Human TGF-beta 3 (Catalog # 243-GMP) inhibits Recombinant Mouse IL‑4 (Catalog # 404-ML) induced proliferation in the HT-2 mouse T cell line. The ED50 for this effect is 0.01-0.04 ng/mL.
1 μg/lane of GMP-grade Recombinant Human TGF-beta 3 (Catalog # 243-GMP) was resolved with SDS-PAGE under reducing (R) and non-reducing (NR) conditions and visualized by silver staining, showing bands at 12 kDa and 23 kDa, respectively.
Background: TGF-beta 3
TGF beta 3 (transforming growth factor-beta 3) is a member of a TGF-beta superfamily subgroup that is defined by their structural and functional similarities (1-5). TGF-beta 3 and its closely related proteins, TGF-beta 1 and -beta 2, act as cellular switches to regulate immune function, cell proliferation, and epithelial-mesenchymal transition (4, 6, 7). The non-redundant biological effects of TGF- beta 3 include involvement in palatogenesis, chondrogenesis, and pulmonary development (1, 2, 7-9). Human TGF- beta 3 cDNA encodes a 412 amino acid (aa) precursor that contains a 20 aa signal peptide and a 392 aa proprotein. The proprotein is processed by a furinlike convertase to generate a 220 aa latencyassociated peptide (LAP) and a 112 aa mature TGF-beta 3 (10, 11). Mature human TGF-beta 3 shows 100%, 99%, and 98% aa identity with mouse/dog/horse, rat, and pig TGF- beta 3, respectively. TGF-beta 3 is secreted as a complex with LAP. This latent form of TGF-beta 3 becomes active upon cleavage by plasmin, matrix metalloproteases, thrombospondin-1, and a subset of integrins (12). TGF-beta 3 binds with high affinity to TGF-beta RII, a type II serine/threonine kinase receptor. This receptor then phosphorylates and activates type I serine/threonine kinase receptors, TGF- beta RI or ALK-1, to modulate transcription through Smad phosphorylation (13-15). The divergent biological effects exerted by individual TGF-beta isoforms is dependent upon the recruitment of co-receptors (TGF- beta RIII and endoglin) and the subsequent initiation of Smad-dependent or -independent signaling pathways (14, 16, 17).

R&D Systems sells its GMP grade recombinant protein products for research use or further manufacturing use in ex vivo cell therapy applications. They are not for in vivo use or for use as therapeutic or other drugs, biologic products or devices. Please read the following End User Terms prior to using this product.
Animal Component-Free Process (ACFP) Manufacturing Conditions R&D Systems Animal Component-Free Process (ACFP) recombinant proteins are expressed in an animal-free certified Sf 9 insect cell line using dedicated animal-free raw materials and labware. Production and purification procedures use equipment and media that are confirmed animal-free but performed outside our dedicated animal-free laboratories. Every stage of the manufacturing process follows R&D Systems' stringent Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs). The certified Sf 9 insect cell bank has undergone extensive testing to certify the lack of cytopathogens by screening for various viruses, Mycoplasma, and Spiroplasmas using both in vitro and in vivo testing methods. For ex vivo research or bioproduction, additional documentation can be provided.
