Additional Information
Description FGF-8 (FGF-8b) is a heparin binding growth factor belonging to 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. There are 4 known alternate spliced forms of FGF8; FGF8A, FGF-8B, FGF-8E and FGF-8F. The human and murine FGF8 A and B are identical unlike human and M FGF8 E and F are 98% identical. FGF-8 targets mammary carcinoma cells and other cells expressing the FGF receptors. Recombinant human FGF-8 (FGF-8b) is a 22.5 kDa protein consisting of 194 amino acid residues.
BiologicalActivity The ED50 as determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of thymidine uptake by BaF3 cells expressing FGF- receptors is ≤ 0.5 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of ≥ 2 x 106 units/mg.
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.
