SDF-1 beta (stromal cell-derived factor-1 beta) is a non-glycosylated Polypeptide that is produced in E-Coli, belonging to the alpha chemokine (C-X-C) family of cytokines.1 SDF-1beta is a highly efficacious chemoattractant for resting lymphocytes and CD34(+) progenitor cells, and it efficiently blocks the CXCR-4-mediated entry into cells of T cell line tropic strains of HIV type 1 (HIV-1). SDF-1beta promotes HIV-1 replication and disease progression.2
>97% by SDS-PAGE and analyzed by silver stain.
<0.1 EU/µg as determined by the LAL method
The biological activity of Human SDF-1β was determined by its ability to chemoattract mouse BaF/3 cells transfected with hCXCR-4 and human T-lymphocytes cultured for 5 - 10 days. The expected ED50 for these effects are typically 1-5 ng/ml and 10-30 ng/ml, respectively.
