|Source||Human 293 Cells||M.W.||CAS No.|
|Formulation||Lyophilized in sterile filtered solution of PBS.|
|Reconstitution||Before reconstitution, a brief spin is recommend to drive down any material dislodged from the bottom of the tube. The lyophilized protein should be reconstituted in sterile H2O to a desired concentration.|
|Stability||The lyophilized protein is stable for at least one year if stored at -80 °C. Reconstituted protein is stable for at least four
weeks at 4 °C, but should be stored in aliquots at -80 °C for longer term. Avoid repeated freeze and thaw.
|Purity||Greater than 95% as determined by SDS-PAGE analysis|
|Biological Activity||The activity was determined by using a SMAD reporter gene assay in cultured human cells. The IC50 ranges from 100 - 500 ng/ml in the inhibition of 1 ng/mL Activin A activity.|

Follistatin like 3 is a homolog of Follistatin which is a secreted protein that binds to some members of the TGF-β family and blocks their access to corresponding receptors. In addition to being a natural antagonist of Activins, Follistatin like 3 may
inhibit the activity of other TGF-β ligands including BMPs, Myostatin, GDF-11, and TGF-β1.
StemRD’s Follistatin like 3 Fc fusion protein is full-length human Follistain like 3 fused to the N-terminus of the Fc domain of human IgG1. This fusion allows stabilization of the protein in vitro and in vivo and dimerization of the recombinant protein rendering high-affinity binding to Activins.
Expression is in human 293 cells cultured in serum-free and protein-free medium. Purification of the fusion protein from culture medium is achieved by using protein A chromatography.
