Recombinant Rat FGF-acidic

Product Details

Catalog Number: 400-29A
Description:

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 Rat FGF-acidic is a 15.9 kDa protein consisting of 141 amino acid residues.
