Betacellulin, Mouse

Synonyms BTC
Description Betacellulin is a pleiotropic cytokine that belongs to the Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF) family. Like other members of the EGF family, Betacellulin possesses a conserved sequence of 35-40 amino acids which contain 3 disulfide bonds formed by 6 cysteines. Betacellulin is unique in the EGF family since it can bind and activate a broad spectrum of ErbB receptors. Functionally, Betacellulin plays a role in the development of the pancreas by activating signaling pathways beneficial for the function, survival and regeneration of pancreatic β-cells. Additionally, Betacellulin has potential angiogenic activities and is important for the growth, development and repair of certain tissues.
Recombinant mouse Betacellulin (rmBetacellulin) produced in E. coli is a single non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 81 amino acids. A fully biologically active molecule, rmBetacellulin has a molecular mass of 9.2 kDa analyzed by reducing SDS-PAGE and is obtained by proprietary chromatographic techniques at GenScript.
