Biological Activity

Human transferrin is a key nutrient in cultured mammalian cells. Human transferrin is composed of a 77kDa glycoprotein containing 679 amino acids. This product is the key to long term cell culture in vivo. It can bind contaminated metal ions in the medium to achieve the effect of detoxification agent. This product is often used as a nutrient in fermentation media to facilitate the production of recombinant proteins and biopharmaceuticals. Other common uses of this product are molecular weight, affinity purification of human transferrin antibody, and cell entry as a receptor-mediated transfection molecule such as DNA.

Chemical Information
Formula C16H22N6O4
CAS Number 11096-37-0
Solubility (25°C) Soluble in water
Storage 2-8°C, protect from light, dry, sealed
Conversion of different model animals based on BSA (PMID: 27057123)
Species Mouse Rat Rabbit Guinea pig Hamster Dog
Weight (kg) 0.02 0.15 1.8 0.4 0.08 10
Body Surface Area (m2) 0.007 0.025 0.15 0.05 0.02 0.5
Km factor 3 6 12 8 5 20
Animal A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by  Animal B Km
Animal A Km

For example, to modify the dose of Compound A used for a mouse (20 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 20 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for Compound A of 10 mg/kg.

Butyzamide is a novel, potent, orally active activator of the non-peptidic thrombopoietin receptor (Mpl) that specifically reacts with human Mpl and activates the same signaling pathways as thrombopoietin. In addition, Butyzamide can be used for the expansion of human hematopoietic stem cells.

Dispase II

Dispase II is a neutral protease that hydrolyzes the N-terminal peptide bonds of non-polar amino acid residues. It may be used for separating many tissues and cells grown in vitro. The enzyme is very gentle and does not damage cell membranes. It can also be used to prevent clumping in suspension cultures.
