FGF-basic (bFGF or FGF2) is a member of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family. FGF family members are heparin-binding multifunctional proteins and are involved in a variety of biological processes including angiogenesis, wound healing, and embryonic development. FGF-basic is known to play a key role during prenatal development and postnatal growth and regeneration of tissues by promoting cellular proliferation and differentiation. FGF-basic has been recognized as a critical component of human embryonic stem cell culture medium due to its vital role for cells to remain in an undifferentiated state. FGF-basic signals through FGFR 1b, 1c, 2c, 3c and 4. This recombinant human FGF-basic consists of 146 amino acid residues. In addition it contains a 10 aa tag at the N-terminus resulting in a 17.8 kDa protein.
Our ISOKineTM growth factors are produced in the endosperm tissue of barley grain (Hordeum vulgare), that exhibits up to 50 times less protease activity than E.coli or mammalian cells. Barley seed is void of any human or animal viral contaminants that could jeopardize your cell culture.
