Description of Human Relaxin-2
Recombinant human Relaxin-2 is a nonglycosylated 6.0 kDa disulfide linked heterodimeric protein consisting of a 24 amino acid A-chain and a 29 amino acid B-chain. Relaxin-2 is a peptide hormone structurally related to insulin, which is expressed in the placenta, decidua, prostate, and in the ovary during pregnancy. Of the three known relaxin genes, Relaxin-2 is the only relaxin known to circulate in the blood. Relaxin-2 binds specifically to the LGR7 and LGR8 receptors, previously identified as an “orphan” G protein coupled receptors. Signaling by Relaxin-2 through its target receptors enhances the growth of pubic ligaments and ripening of the cervix during birth.

We recommend a quick spin followed by reconstitution in sterile filtered water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml. Do not vortex. This solution can be stored at 2-8°C for up to 1 week. For extended storage, it is recommended to further dilute in a buffer containing a carrier protein (example 0.1% HSA, order number: 2835.955.xyz or 2835.958.xyz) and store in working aliquots at -20°C to -80°C.
The lyophilized protein is stable at room temperature for up 1 month and at 4°C up to 6 months. Working aliquots stored with a carrier protein are stable for at least 12 months at -20°C to -80°C. Please avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
