Human CXCL4 Protein Product Information
Synonym:PF4, CXCL4, MGC138298, SCYB4
Protein Construction:A DNA sequence encoding the human CXCL4 (NP_002610.1) (Glu 32-Ser 101) was expressed.
Expressed Host:E. coli
Shipping:In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature.
Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
Human CXCL4 Protein QC Testing
Purity:> 80 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Bio-Activity:1. Measured by its ability to inhibit human bFGF / FGF2 dependent proliferation of Balb/c3T3 mouse fibroblasts. The ED50 for this effect is typically 5-40 μg/ml.
2. Measured by its binding ability in a functional ELISA. Immobilized human CXCL4 at 20 μg/ml (100 μl/well) can bind biotinylated human VEGF165. The EC50 of biotinylated human VEGF165 is 9.97 μg/ml.
Endotoxin:Please contact us for more information.
Stability:Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -70℃
Predicted N Terminal:Met
Molecule Mass:The recombinant human CXCL4 comprises 71 amino acids with a predicted molecular mass of 7.8 kDa as estimated in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Formulation:Lyophilized from sterile PBS, pH 7.4
1. Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose and mannitol are added as protectants before lyophilization. Specific concentrations are included in the hardcopy of COA.
2. Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
Human CXCL4 Protein Usage Guide
Storage:Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Reconstitution:A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.

CXCL4 / PF4 Background

Platelet factor 4 (PF4), also known as chemokine (C-X-C motif) ligand 4 (CXCL4), is a small cytokine belonging to the CXC chemokine family. CXCL4/PF4 is released from the alpha-granules of activated platelets and binds with high affinity to heparin. Its major physiologic role appears to be neutralization of heparin-like molecules on the endothelial surface of blood vessels, thereby inhibiting local antithrombin III activity and promoting coagulation. As a strong chemoattractant for neutrophils and fibroblasts, CXCL4/PF4 probably has a role in inflammation and wound repair. This protein is released during platelet aggregation. CXCL4/PF4 neutralizes the anticoagulant effect of heparin because it binds more strongly to heparin than to the chondroitin-4-sulfate chains of the carrier molecule. CXCL4 is chemotactic for neutrophils and monocytes. It inhibits endothelial cell proliferation, the short form is a more potent inhibitor than the longer form. CXCL4/PF4 is up-regulated in human liver fibrosis and that it plays a nonredundant, functional role in experimental liver fibrosis by mediating stellate cell proliferation, migration, and intrahepatic immune cell recruitment.
