Stability and Reconstitution

Stability and Storage Lyophilized proteins are stable for 1 year from the date of receipt if stored between (-20°C) and (-80°C). Upon reconstitution we recommend that the solution can be stored at (4°C) for short term or at (-20°C) to (-80°C) for long term. Repeated freeze thaw cycles should be avoided with reconstituted products.
Reconstitution Briefly centrifuge the vial before opening. It is recommended to reconstitute the protein in sterile 1xPBS pH 7.4 containing 0.1% endotoxin-free recombinant human serum albumin (HSA).

Background

Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) is the most potent mitogen of mature hepatocytes in primary culture. It is secreted by mesenchymal cells and acts as a multi-functional cytokine on cells of mainly epithelial origin (PMID 1530787, 2531289). HGF exerts a variety of effects on several cells, such as inflammation, tissue repair, morphogenesis, angiogenesis, tumour propagation, immunomodulation of viral infections and cardio-metabolic activities (PMID: 1846706; 15070743; 1383237; 1827664).
