Human TGF-β2

Human TGF-β2

TGF-β2 stands for transforming growth factor β2. Human TGF-β2 is a recombinant protein optimized for use in cell culture, differentiation studies, and functional assays.

Applications

Human TGF-β2 may be used for a variety of applications, including:
  • Mechanisms of tumor development.
  • Tissue-engineering, organ development, and embryogenesis.
  • Investigation of TGF-β-receptor signaling pathway.

Background information

Human transforming growth factor β2 (TGF-β2) is a member of a superfamily of homologous, disulfide-linked, homodimeric proteins that regulate the proliferation and differentiation of normal and transformed cells. Human TGF-β2 is a 25.4 kDa protein with each subunit containing 112 amino acid residues.

Quality description

Research-grade
cytokines are suitable for a wide variety of cell culture applications. They are sterile-filtered prior to lyophilization. Generally, endotoxin levels are <0.1 ng/μg (<1 EU/μg), and purities are >95%. The biological activity is tested in appropriate bioassays.
