Animal-Free Cytokines

Animal-Free Recombinant Human FGF-basic (154 a.a.)

Product Details

Catalogue Number: AF-100-18B
Description:

FGF-basic is one of 23 known members of the FGF family. Proteins of this family play a central role during prenatal development, 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.

Qualified for stem cell use.

Manufactured using all Animal-Free reagents.
