|Calculated MW||22.4 kDa|
|Other Names||Fibroblast Growth Factor-8, FGF-8b, AIGF, HBGF, Androgen-induced growth factor, Heparin-binding growth factor 8|
|Application Notes||Centrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in 5 mM Tris, pH 8.0 to a concentration of 0.1-1 mg/ml. This solution can be diluted into other aqueous buffers and stored at 4°C for 1 week or -20°C for future use. Repeated freeze/thaw cycles will result in some loss of activity.|
|Storage||-20°C; Lyophilized in 10 mM Tris, pH 8.0 + 75 mM NaCl. The protein may appear as a haze or film, which may not be seen at the bottom of the vial.|
