Human recombinant Activin-A, active form, produced in E.coli is a homodimeric, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 2 x 117 amino acids and having a molecular weight of 26.2kDa. Activins are homodimers or heterodimers of the different beta subunit isoforms, part of the TGFbeta family. Mature Activin A has two 116 amino acids residues betaA subunits (betaA-betaA). Activin displays an extensive variety of biological activities, including mesoderm induction, neural cell differentiation, bone remodelling, haematopoiesis, and reproductive physiology. Activins take part in the production and regulation of hormones such as FSH, LH, GnRH and ACTH. Cells that are identified to express Activin A include fibroblasts, endothelial cells, hepatocytes, vascular smooth muscle cells, macrophages, keratinocytes, osteoclasts, bone marrow monocytes, prostatic epithelium, neurons, chondrocytes, osteoblasts, Leydig cells, Sertoli cells, and ovarian granulosa cells.
