Trefoil factors (TFF) are secretory products of mucin producing cells. They play a key role in the maintenance of the surface integrity of oral mucosa and enhance healing of the gastrointestinal mucosa by a process called restitution. TFF comprises the gastric peptides (TFF1), spasmolytic peptide (TFF2), and the intestinal trefoil factor (TFF3). They have an important and necessary role in epithelial restitution within the gastrointestinal tract. Members of the trefoil family are characterized by having at least one copy of the trefoil motif, a 40-amino acid domain that contains three conserved disulfide bonds. They are stable secretory proteins expressed in gastrointestinal mucosa. Trefoil Factor 3(TFF3) is involved in the maintenance and repair of the intestinal mucosa. TFF3 promotes the mobility of epithelial cells in healing processes (motogen).
Recombinant Mouse Trefoil Factor 3/TFF3 Protein (His Tag)
Recombinant Mouse Trefoil Factor 3 is produced by our Mammalian expression system and the target gene encoding Ala23-Phe81 is expressed with a 6His tag at the C-terminus.
This product is provided as lyophilized powder which is shipped with ice packs.
