Animal-Free Recombinant Human FGF-acidic
FGF-acidic 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-acidic is a non-glycosylated heparin binding growth factor that is expressed in the brain, kidney, retina, smooth muscle cells, bone matrix, osteoblasts, astrocytes and endothelial cells. FGF-acidic has the ability to signal through all the FGF receptors. Recombinant Human FGF-acidic is a 16.8 kDa protein consisting of 141 amino acid residues.
Manufactured using all Animal-Free reagents.

≥ 95% by SDS-PAGE gel and HPLC analyses.
Assay #1: The ED50 as determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of thymidine uptake by BaF3 cells expressing FGF receptors is ≤ 10ng/ml corresponding to a specific activity of ≥ 1 x 105 units/mg.
Assay #2: The ED50 was determined by a cell proliferation assay using balb/c 3T3 cells is ≤ 0.5 ng/ml in the presence of 10 μg/ml heparin, corresponding to a specific activity of ≥ 2 x 106 units/mg.
