Activin A (animal free), human recombinant

Human Activin A is a 26 kDa disulfide-linked homodimer of two beta A chains, each containing 116 amino acid residues. Activin A is a TGF-beta family member with a wide range of biological activities including regulation of cellular proliferation and differentiation, and promotion of neuronal survival. The biological activities of Activin A can be counteracted by inhibins and also by the diffusible TGF-beta antagonist, Follistatin. Animal Free: This product is produced with no animal-derived raw products, animal free equipment and animal free protocols.

Product Type:
Peptides & proteins
Alternative Names:
Inhibin beta-1, FRP, FSH-releasing protein
Storage Temp:
Molecular Weight:
26.2 kDa
PURITY (MIN.): ≥95
Additional Information:
Produced using animal free raw components and processes, in a non-mammalian system. Ideal for researchers concerned about the risks and effects of contaminating viruses, prions and trace growth factors from FBS and animal-derived ingredients used in standard recombinant protein production techniques. Endotoxin levels are less than 1.0 EU per ug protein via LAL. Bioactivity is comparable to recombinant protein produced in traditional techniques.
