Recombinant Human FGF-6

Product Details

Catalog Number: 100-30
Description:

FGF-6 is a secreted, heparin-binding 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-6 is expressed in leukemia cell lines with platelet megakaryocytic differentiation potential. It signals through FGFR 1c, 2c, and 4. Recombinant Human FGF-6 is an 18.7 kDa protein consisting of 168 amino acid residues.
