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, postnatal growth and regeneration of a variety of tissues, by promoting cellular proliferation and differentiation. There are 4 known alternate spliced forms of FGF8; FGF-8A, FGF-8B, FGF-8E and FGF-8F. The human and murine FGF-8A and B are identical, unlike human and mouse FGF-8E and F, which 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.

Biological Activity

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 ≥ 2×106 units/mg.

Endotoxin

Endotoxin level is <0.1 ng/μg of protein (<1EU/μg).

Reconstitution

Centrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in water to a concentration of 0.1–1.0 mg/ml. Do not vortex. For extended storage, it is recommended to further dilute in a buffer containing a carrier protein (example 0.1% BSA) and store in working aliquots at –20°C to –80°C.

Storage/Expiration

 –20°C
