Animal-Free Recombinant Human/Murine/Rat Activin A (E.coli-derived)
Activin A is a TGF-β family member that exhibits a wide range of biological activities including regulation of cellular proliferation and differentiation, and promotion of neuronal survival. Elevated levels of Activin A in human colorectal tumors and in postmenopausal women have been implicated in colorectal and breast cancers, respectively. The biological activities of Activin A can be neutralized by inhibins and by the diffusible TGF-β antagonist, follistatin. Human/Murine/Rat Activin A is a 26.0 kDa disulfide-linked homodimer of two βA chains, each containing 116 amino acid residues. Manufactured using all non-animal reagents.
Above 97% as determined by SDS-PAGE Analysis.
