  • Background: Growth differentiation factor 8 (GDF8), also known as myostatin, is a unique member of the transforming growth factor-β superfamily that is expressed in human granulosa cells and has important roles in regulating a variety of ovarian functions. GDF8 acts as a negative regulator of skeletal muscle growth and differentiation. In addition to the expression in the musculoskeletal system, GDF8 is also expressed in various tissues, including the reproductive system.
  • Exp Region: Asn 24 - Ser 375
  • Swiss-prot: O14793-1
  • Characteristics: This protein carries a polyhistidine tag at the N-terminus. The protein has a calculated MW of 42.0 kDa. The protein migrates as 35 kDa and 45-50 kDa when calibrated against Star Ribbon Pre-stained Protein Marker under reducing (R) condition (SDS-PAGE) due to glycosylation.
