Recombinant Human FGF-21

Product Details

Catalog Number: 100-42
Description:

FGF-21 is a secreted growth factor that is a member 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-21, in the presence of β-Klotho as a protein cofactor, signals through the FGFR 1c and 4 receptors, and stimulates insulin-independent glucose uptake by adipocytes. Recombinant Human FGF-21 is a 19.5 kDa protein containing 182 amino acid residues.
