Mouse FGF-2

Mouse FGF-2

FGF-2 stands for fibroblast growth factor 2. Mouse FGF-2 is a recombinant protein optimized for use in cell culture, differentiation studies, and functional assays.

Applications

Mouse FGF-2 can be used for a variety of applications including:
  • Differentiation of neural cells starting from ES and iPS cell cultures.
  • Cultivation of neurons.
  • Investigation of embryonic development.
  • Analysis of FGFR signaling.
  • Proliferation of spermatogonial stem cells.

Background information

FGF-2 (or basic FGF) stands for fibroblast growth factor 2, and belongs to the family of heparin-binding growth factors. It functions as a wide-spectrum mitogenic, angiogenic, and neurotropic factor and stimulates the proliferation of a wide variety of cells including mesenchymal, neuroectodermal, and endothelial cells. FGF-2 has been implicated in a multitude of physiological and pathological processes, including limb development, angiogenesis, wound healing, and tumor growth.

Quality description

Research-grade
cytokines are suitable for a wide variety of cell culture applications. They are sterile-filtered prior to lyophilization. Generally, endotoxin levels are <0.1 ng/μg (<1 EU/μg), and purities are >95%. The biological activity is tested in appropriate bioassays.
