GDF­8, also known as Myostatin, belongs to the TGF-beta superfamily. It is synthesized as an inactive proprotein with the N­terminal pro­region and the C­terminal mature bioactive region. The GDF­8 proregion is capable of associating with active GDF­8 with high affinity and is a potent GDF­8 antagonist.

Suitable for use in Western Blot and Direct ELISA. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Western Blot: 1ug/ml
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
