Recombinant Rat FGF-acidic
Catalog Number : 400-29A
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.
Above 95% as determined by SDS-PAGE Analysis.
Determined by a cell proliferation assay using balb/c 3T3 cells. The expected ED50 is ≤ 0.1 ng/ml, in the presence of 10 µg/ml heparin, corresponding to a specific activity of ≥ 1 x 107 units/mg.
