Product Details

Catalog Number: 100-23
Description:

FGF-9 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-9 targets glial cells, astrocytes cells and other cells that express the FGFR 1c, 2c, 3b, 3c, and 4. Recombinant Human FGF-9 is a 23.2 kDa protein consisting of 206 amino acid residues.
