Synthetic protein ACTH

OMIM: 176830

3D structure: ModBase 3D Structure for P01189

Purity / Purification

More than 98.0% as determined by:
(a) RP-HPLC analysis.
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.

Shape / Format

The protein (1 mg / mL) was lyophilized without additives.

Physical appearance

Sterile Filtered White Lyophilized (lyophilized powder).


It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized ACTH in sterile Omega-cm H2O 18M not less than 100 ug/ml, which can then be diluted in other aqueous solutions.

Preparation and storage

Lyophilized adrenocorticotropic hormone, although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18 ° C. After reconstitution, ACTH should be stored at 4 ° C for 2-7 days and for future use below -18 ° C. For long-term storage, it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). cycles.

Other notes

Occasionally, small volumes of synthetic protein ACTH vial (s) may become trapped in the product vial seal during shipping and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial in a benchtop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid on the lid of the container. Some products may need to be shipped with dry ice and an additional fee may apply for dry ice.

Description: The molecular formula of adrenocorticotropic hormone is C136H210N40O31S and the molecular weight is 2933.5 Dalton.

Introduction: adrenocorticotropic hormone, as its name indicates, stimulates the adrenal cortex. More specifically, it stimulates the secretion of glucocorticoids such as cortisol and has little control over the secretion of aldosterone, the other important steroid hormone in the adrenal cortex. It stimulates the secretion of adrenal corticosteroids and induces the growth of the adrenal cortex. ACTH, also called tetracosactide, directly activates G proteins. Stimulates the formation of adenylate cyclase and cAMP.
