Details for ProNGF Human
Amino Acid Sequence: Nerve Growth Factor
Biological Activity: The activity of the protein can by measured by its stimulating effect on the proliferation of TF1 cells (Chevalier et al. 1994 Blood 83, 1479-85).
EC50 130 +/- 30 pM (TF1 cell assay). Physical Appearance: Sterile Filtered clear solution. Pro NGF is the pro-form of the neurotrophin nerve growth factor. Like the mature protein pro NGF is characterized by the cysteine knot motif consisting of three cysteine bridges. The protein predominantly exists as a non-covalently linked homodimer.
Pro-Nerve Growth Factor Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 222 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 49,738 Dalton.
The Pro NGF is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Function: Nerve growth factor is important for the development and maintenance of the sympathetic and sensory nervous systems. It stimulates division and differentiation of sympathetic and embryonic sensory neurons.
Subcellular Location: Secreted.
Disease: Defects in NGF are the cause of hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy type 5 (HSAN5) [MIM:608654]. Hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathies are characterized by loss of pain sensation in combination with other sensory and/or autonomic abnormalities. HSAN5 patients manifest loss of pain perception and impaired temperature sensitivity, ulcers, and in some cases self-mutilation. The autonomic involvement is variable.
Similarity: Belongs to the NGF-beta family.
