Product Background

Activin-A, a member of the TGF-β superfamily, Extensive research over the past decades illuminated fundamental roles for activin-A in essential biologic processes, including embryonic development, stem cell maintenance and differentiation, haematopoiesis, cell proliferation and tissue fibrosis. Activin-A signals through two type I and two type II receptors which, upon ligand binding, activate their kinase activity, phosphorylate the SMAD2 and 3 intracellular signaling mediators that form a complex with SMAD4, translocate to the nucleus and activate or silence gene expression.

Amino Acid Range

Molecular Weight The protein has a predicted MW of 13.0 kDa (mature form) and 32.0 kDa (pro form). Due to glycosylation and interchain disulfide bond, the protein migrates to 15 kDa (mature form) and 40-50 kDa (pro form) under reduced (R) condition based on Tris-Bis PAGE result.
