(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
(b) Analysis by reducing and non-reducing SDS-PAGE
Background FLT3 ligand is a receptor for the fl cytokine has a tyrosine-protein kinase activity & a growth factor that regulates proliferation of early hematopoietic cells. Flt3-Ligand synergizes with other CSFs and interleukins to induce growth and differentiation.

5. Neutralization of IL-12 reverses rejection of mouse liver allografts from Flt3-ligand-treated donors and is associated with suppression of both cellular and humoral responses. Transplant Proc 2001 Feb-Mar;33(1-2):525
Storage Lyophilized FLT3-Ligand although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C.
Upon reconstitution FLT3 should be stored at 2-8°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Please avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
Shelf life: one year from despatch.
Source E. coli
Flt3-Ligand Mouse Recombinant produced in E.coli is non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 144 amino acids. The sequence of the first five N-terminal amino acids was determined and was found to be Thr-Gln-Asp-Cys-Ser.Flt3-Ligand is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Biological activity:
The activity is determined by the ability to generate CD11c+ splenic dendritic cells in vivo in C57B1/6-12 week female mice. To obtain the desired affect, mice were treated with approximately 25ug of flt3-ligand once daily for 9 consecutive days via intraperitoneal injection.
Molecular weight:
16431 Dalton
>98% greater than 98.0% as determined by:
(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
(b) Analysis by reducing and non-reducing SDS-PAGE
Sterile filtered, white lyophilized powder without additives
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Flt3-Ligand in sterile 18 MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100 µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
