Human FGF-basic 154 aa (FGF2)

Human recombinant FGF-basic 154 aa or FGF-2 (FGF2) protein is a recombinant protein widely used as a growth factor in many cell culture applications.  Recombinant FGF-2 is a critical growth factor needed for expansion and long term maintenance of pluripotent stem cell culture.

Tested for biological activity in a 3T3 cell proliferation assay. Lyophilized protein, high purity, low endotoxin, high quality FGF-2 is manufactured in the USA by protein manufacturer Shenandoah and available for sale in bulk amounts.  Lot-specific results are reported for each production lot.

Alternate Names:  FGF2, HBGF-2, Prostatropin              

Accession Number: P09038

Description:  Basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF-basic), also known as FGF-2, is expressed by endothelial cells and is a mediator of angiogenesis.  FGF-basic also has cardioprotective functions during heart injury.  FGF-basic is a critical component for embryonic stem cell culture systems and is necessary for maintaining cells in an undifferentiated state.  Recombinant FGF-basic 154 is the full length FGF-basic protein encoded by the human FGF-2 gene.  FGF-basic 154 is the most popular tissue culture product at Shenandoah Biotechnology, Inc.  There are no detectable differences in biological activity between FGF-basic 154 and the truncated FGF-basic 147 proteins.
Source:  Genetically modified E.coli.
Predicted MW: Monomer, 17.3 kDa (155 aa)
Formulation:  Lyophilized from a sterile (0.2 micron) filtered aqueous solution containing 10 mM sodium phosphate, 75 mM sodium chloride, pH 8.0
