Recombinant Human bFGF Protein (Fibroblast growth factor 2) expressed in E. coli.
Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF), also known as FGF2, is a member of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family. It is a highly specific chemotactic and mitogenic factor for many cell types, appears to be involved in remodeling damaged tissue, such as ulcer healing, vascular repair, traumatic brain injury (TBI). bFGF is a critical component of human embryonic stem cell culture medium. In addition, bFGF protein is a heparin-binding cationic protein involved in a variety of pathological conditions including angiogenesis and solid tumour growth. Thus, bFGF is regarded as a target for cancers chemopreventive and therapeutic strategies.
Amino acid sequence derived from human bFGF soluble form (NP_09038) (Ala135-Ser288) was expressed, with an initial Met at the N-terminus.
Features & Benefits:
Always centrifuge tubes before opening. It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Human bFGF protein in sterile ddH2O not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized Human bFGF protein product should be stored desiccated below -20°C. Upon reconstitution, the protein should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -20°C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
The product is shipped at ambient temperature.
