Molecular weight: 27.2 kDa protein composed of two identical 118 amino acid polypeptide chains linked by a single disulfide bond.
Description:Transforming growth factor –β is a family of five related cytokines that have been shown on a wide variety of normal and neoplastic cells, indicating the importance of these homodimeric proteins as multi-functional regulators of cellular activity. The three mammalian isoforms of TGFβ (TGFβ-1, TGFβ-2 and TGFβ-3) signal through the same receptor and elicit similar biological responses. They are involved in physiological processes as embryogenesis, tissue remodelling and wound healing.
Biological Activity: The biological activity of TGF-β3 is measured in culture by its ability to inhibit the mink lung epithelial (Mv1Lu) cells proliferation.
