Reconstitution It is recommended that this vial be briefly centrifuged prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Reconstitute the lyophilized powder in 50 mM acetic acid or ddH₂O up to 100 μg/ml.
Storage & Stability Upon receiving, this product remains stable for up to 6 months at lower than -70°C. Upon reconstitution, the product should be stable for up to 1 week at 4°C or up to 3 months at -20°C. For long term storage it is recommended that a carrier protein (example 0.1% BSA) be added. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.

Target Background Neurotrophin-4 (NT-4), also known as NT-5, is a neurotrophic factor structurally related to β-NGF, BDNF, and NT-3. Human NT-4 shares 48 - 52% aa sequence identity with human β-NGF, BDNF, and NT-3. Neurotrophins have six conserved cysteine residues that are involved in the formation of three disulfide bonds. NT-4 is expressed highest levels in prostate, lower levels in thymus, placenta, and skeletal muscle. NT-4 binds and induces receptor dimerization and activation of TrkB. NT-4 can signal through TrkB receptors and promotes the survival of peripheral sensory sympathetic neurons.
Synonyms Neurotrophin-4; NTF4; GLC10; GLC1O; NT-4; NT-4/5; NT-5; NT4; NT5; NTF5; neurotrophin 4
