A fibroblast-acid growth factor, aFGF is a protein which in humans is encoded by the FGF1 gene. The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family. Acidic FGF is a potent growth factor for fibroblasts and endothelial cells. Acidic FGF is involved in wound repair, angiogenesis, and development. Acidic FGF is secreted by cells via a mechanism independent of the endoplasmic reticulum / Golgi. The ability of acidic FGF to bind to heparin sulfate is required for its ability to interact with FGF receptors and induce signaling. There are four distinct FGF receptors and each has several splice variants. Acidic FGF binds with high affinity to many FGFRs, but not all. Signaling cascades activated by the basic binding of FGF to FGFR include the ras-raf-MAPK, PLCy / PKC and PI3K / Akt pathways.

Biological activity: The EC50, calculated by the dose-dependent proliferation of mouse BALB / c 3T3 cells is less than 0.5 ng / ml, corresponding to a specific activity ≥ 2 × 106 units / mg of protein.

Packaging : In general, recombinant proteins are supplied as a lyophilized powder which is shipped at room temperature.
