Lyophilized Standard Mix-Human Group 8, Panel A, 7-Plex. PN: HG81007. One vial containing lyophilized recombinant BMP-2, BMP-4, IGFBP-3, IGFBP-5, IGFBP-6, TIMP-1, and TIMP-2.  Note: If multiple analyte kits on the above target list are ordered as a panel, only one vial of standard mix is supplied for those analyte kits.

STORAGE:  2-8 C in the dark.

IMPORTANT: Sodium azide forms explosive compounds with heavy metals. These products contain <0.05% (w/w) azide which with repeated contact with lead and copper commonly found in plumbing drains may result in the buildup of shock sensitive compounds. Dispose in accordance with regulations from your institute.

Human IGFBP-6 is an O-glycosylated protein. It is abundant in cerebrospinal fluid and has a marked preferential binding affinity for IGF-2 over IGF-1. Levels of IGFBP-6 (and also of IGFBP-5) have been found to be increased in human breast cancer cells treated with estradiol and IGF-1 and may thus contribute to mitogenesis.  Diseases associated with IGFBP6 include exfoliative ichthyosis and insulin-like growth factor I.
