Leukocyte interferon, B cell interferon, Type I interferon, IFNB1, IFB, IFF, IFNB,IFN-b 1a ,MGC96956.
Interferon-beta 1b has antiviral, antibacterial and anticancer activities.
Interferon-beta 1a Human Recombinant produced in CHO (Chinese Hamster Ovarian) cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 166 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 22500 Dalton.
IFN-beta1a is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
CHO (Chinese Hamster Ovarian) cells.
Lyophilized from 1mg/ml solution containing 91 mg Human Albumin, and 620mg mannitol, and 9 mg Sodium Acetate.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Interferon beta 1a in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized Interferon-beta 1a although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution IFN-Beta1a should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 98.0% as determined by:
(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC.
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
Amino acid sequence:
The sequence of the first five N-terminal amino acids was determined and was found to be Ser-Tyr-Asn-Leu-Leu.
The specific activity as determined in a viral resistance assay (human “Wish” cell line and VSV virus or the monkey VERO cell line with EMCV virus) was found to be 270 x 106 IU/mg.
