Description

FGF-8a is a member of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family. FGF family members possess broad mitogenic and cell survival activities, and are involved in a variety of biological processes, including embryonic development, cell growth, morphogenesis, tissue repair, tumor growth and invasion. FGF-8 shows limited expression in the normal adult, but low levels are found in the reproductive and genitourinary tract, peripheral leukocytes and bone marrow hematopoietic cells. FGF-8b is one of the isoforms of FGF-8, and is involved in many biological processes including angiogenesis.

Source:
Escherichia coli

Endotoxin Test:
<0.1 EU per 1 μg of the protein by the LAL method.

Activity:
Measure by its ability to induce 3T3 cells proliferation. The ED50 for this effect is 1.4-3.8 ng/mL. The specific activity of recombinant human FGF-8b is > 2 x 105 IU/mg.

Purity:
>95% as determined by SDS-PAGE. Ni-NTA chromatography

Formulation:
The protein was lyophilized from a solution containing 0.1% sarkosyl in 1X PBS, pH 8.0.

Reconstitution:
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized protein in sterile H2O to a concentration not less than 100 μg/mL and incubate the stock solution for at least 20 min to ensure sufficient re-dissolved.

Storage:
Lyophilized protein should be stored at -20°C. Upon reconstitution, protein aliquots should be stored at -20°C or -80°C.

Note:
Please use within one month after protein reconstitution.
