Activin A (animal free), mouse recombinant

Activin A is a member of the TGFbeta family of proteins produced by many cell types throughout development. Activins interact with Type I and Type II serine/threonine kinases to signal to SMAD proteins to regulate a variety of functions, including cell proliferation, differentiation, wound healing, apoptosis, metabolism, etc. Activin A is a homodimer of two beta A chains and is not biologically active until the N terminal propeptide is cleaved from each. Mouse Activin A has 100% amino acid sequence identity to human, rat, porcine, bovine and feline proteins. Recombinant mouse Activin A is a non‐glycosylated homodimer. 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.
