Available Size : 10µg, 100µg, 500µg, 1mg
Synonyms : Fibroblast Growth Factor-basic, FGF-2, HBGF-2, Prostatropin
Description : FGF-basic is one of 23 known members of the FGF family. Proteins of this family play a central role during prenatal development and postnatal growth and regeneration of a variety of tissues, by promoting cellular proliferation and differentiation. FGF-basic is a non-glycosylated heparin binding growth factor that is expressed in the brain, pituitary, kidney, retina, bone, testis, adrenal gland liver, monocytes, epithelial cells and endothelial cells. FGF-basic signals through FGFR 1b, 1c, 2c, 3c and 4. Recombinant human FGF-basic is a 17.2 kDa protein consisting of 154 amino acid residues.
Source : INNOkine Human FGF-basic is produced in rice suspension cells (Oryza sativa L. cv. Dongjin)
Purity : Greater than 98% by SDS-PAGE gel and HPLC analyses.
Endotoxin Level : <0.05EU/µg
Biological Activity : Assay #1: The ED50 as determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of thymidine uptake by BaF3 cells expressing FGF receptors is ≤ 0.5 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of ≥ 2 x 106 units/mg.
