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 and 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 16.0 kDa protein consisting of 141 amino acid residues. Manufactured using all non-animal reagents.
Above 95% as determined by SDS-PAGE Analysis.
