Procalcitonin (PCT) is a peptide hormone mainly produced by the C cells of the thyroid and certain endocrine cells of the lung. Under normal expression conditions, procalcitonin is immediately cleaved into three specific fragments, an N-terminal residue, calcitonin and katacalcin. Levels of unprocessed procalcitonin rise significantly after bacterial infection, trauma or shock.Source:Recombinant protein corresponding to human PCT, a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 114aa fragment (aa3-116), fused to His-tag at N-terminal, expressed in E. coli.Molecular Weight: ~17.13kDStorage and Stability:May be stored at 4°C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
