Osteonectin is an extracellular matrix adhesion glycoprotein. In vitro, osteonectin binds type I collagen, calcium and hydroxyapatite. It plays an important role in cell cohesion as well as in embryogenesis and healing processes. Osteonectin has also been identified in the alpha granules of platelets and is secreted during activation.
All proteins are accompanied by product information sheets which describe proper storage conditions. In order that we may warrant product stability, it is imperative that these storage conditions be maintained at all times. By briefly centrifuging the samples in their original containers, complete recovery of the sample at the bottom of the tube will be accomplished. All products which are formulated with glycerol/H₂O should be stored at -20° C. Temperatures lower than -30° C should be avoided in order to prevent a phase transition. Never allow protein solutions to remain at room temperature for excessive periods of time. Elevated temperatures may enhance the rate of protein degradation. Avoid storing or maintaining dilute protein samples for a long period of time. In general, purified proteins are inherently more stable in concentrated form. Many proteins are «sticky» by nature. To avoid losing protein due to adsorption, extremely dilute protein samples should be prepared in buffers containing excipients such as bovine serum albumin, poly(ethylene glycol), or gelatin.
