|Formulation||Lyophilized in a solution of acetonitrile and TFA.|
|Reconstitution||Before reconstitution, we recommend a brief spin to drive down any material dislodged from the bottom of the tube. The lyophilized peptide should be reconstituted in sterile PBS.|
|Stability||The lyophilized protein is stable for at least 1 year if stored at -80 °C. Reconstituted protein is stable for at least 1 month 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 RP-HPLC analysis|
|Country of Origin||USA|
Thymosins are small polypeptides originally isolated from the thymus, but most are actually present in many other tissues. The archetypical β-Thymosin is Thymosin-β4, which is a cellular constituent in many tissues. In addition to its role as a major actin-sequestering molecule, Thymosin-β4 has a role in tissue repair. Such effect have been shown in animal models of tissue damage and now in human clinical trials. Recently, Thymosin-β4 was shown to stimulate regeneration of adult cardiac progenitor cells in a paper published in Nature (Smart, et al., Nature, 2011, June 8th).
