FGF‐10 is a heparin‐binding growth factor that belongs to 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‐10 is most related to KGF/FGF‐7, and is expressed during the development and, preferentially, in adult lungs. It signals through FGFR 2b. Recombinant Rat FGF‐10 is a 20.2 kDa protein consisting of 180 amino acid residues.

≥ 95% by SDS-PAGE gel and HPLC analyses.
Assay #1: Determined by dose-dependent ability to reduce tetrazolium salt, WST-8, by dehydrogenase activities of BaF3 cells expressing FGF receptors using Cell Counting Kit-8 (CCK-8).
Assay #2: Determined by a cell proliferation assay using 4MBr-5 cells. The expected ED50 for this effect is 1-5 ng/ml.
Calculated Molecular Weight:
Endotoxin level is < 0.1 ng/ug of protein (< 1 EU/ug)
Not for human use.
