Description

Introduction
FGF-basic is a member of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family. FGF family members bind heparin and possess broad mitogenic and angiogenic activities. This protein has been implicated in diverse biological processes, such as limb and nervous system development, wound healing, and tumor growth. The mRNA for this gene contains multiple polyadenylation sites, and is alternatively translated from AUG and non-AUG (CUG) initiation codons resulting in five different isoforms with distinct properties. The CUG-initiated isoforms are localized in the nucleus and are responsible for the intracrine effect, whereas, the AUG-initiated form is mostly cytosolic and is responsible for the paracrine and autocrine effects of this FGF.

BP000183-CYT-608: Recombinant Rat Fibroblast Growth Factor 2 (FGF2) Protein

Source: E. coli-derived.
A single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 145 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 16.3 kDa.
The ED50 range as determined by the dose-dependant proliferation of BALB/3T3 cells was found to be less than 0.2 ug/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of 5,000,000 IU/mg.
Purity: > 97% by SDS-PAGE and RP-HPLC.
Formulation: Lyophilized from 1 ug/ml solution after extensive dialysis against 20 mM phosphate buffer, pH 7.4 and 130 mM NaCl.
Reconstitution: It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Rat bFGF in sterile 18 M?-cm H2O not less than 100 ug/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.

Shipping: The product is shipped at ambient temperature. Upon receipt, store it immediately at the temperature recommended below.
Stability & Storage: Use a manual defrost freezer and avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
12 months from date of receipt, -20 to -70°C as supplied.
1 month, 2 to 8°C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.
3 months, -20 to -70°C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.
