Nerve growth factor (NGF) is a neurotrophic factor and neuropeptide primarily involved in the regulation of growth, maintenance, proliferation, and survival of certain target neurons. NGF is also involved in pathways besides those regulating the life cycle of neurons. a nerve growth factor (NGF)-dependent TF-1 subclone cell line suitable for determination of bioactivity of recombinant NGF (rhNGF), then TF-1 cells were seeded into triplicate wells of 96-well plates at a density of 5000 cells/well with 1% serum standard RPMI-1640 contain various concentrations of recombinant rat NGF. After incubated for 72h, cells were observed by inverted microscope and cell proliferation was measured by Cell Counting Kit-8 (CCK-8). Briefly, 10 μl of CCK-8 solution was added to each well of the plate, then the absorbance at 450nm was measured using a microplate reader after incubating the plate for 1-4 hours at 37ºC. Proliferation of TF-1 cells after incubation with TF-1 for 72h observed by inverted microscope.
Lyophilized from 20 mM Tris (pH 8.0) with 150 mM NaCl, 1 mM EDTA, 1 mM DTT, 0.01% SKL, 5% Trehalose, Proclin300. Reconstitute with 20 mM Tris and 150 mM NaCl (pH 8.0) to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. Do not vortex.
For short-term storage (1-2 weeks), store at 4ºC. For long-term storage, store at -20ºC or below. After reconstitution, keep as concentrated solution.Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
