|Description||FGF-21 is a secreted growth factor that is a member of the FGF family. Proteins of this family play a central role during prenatal development and postnatal growth and regeneration of a variety of tissues, by promoting cellular proliferation and differentiation. FGF-21, in the presence of βKlotho as a protein cofactor, signals through the FGFR 1c and 4 receptors and stimulates insulin independent glucose uptake by adipocytes. Recombinant human FGF-21 is a 19.5 kDa protein containing 182 amino acid residues.|
|BiologicalActivity||FGF-21, in the absence of betaKlotho, shows weak activity of thymidine uptake by BaF3 cells expressing FGF receptors.|
|Authenticity||Verified by N-terminal and Mass Spectrometry analyses (when applicable).|
|Endotoxin||Endotoxin level is <0.1 ng/ µg of protein (<1EU/ µg).|
|Protein Content||Verified by UV Spectroscopy and/or SDS-PAGE gel.|
|Precautions||Recombinant Human FGF-21 is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
