* Suggested working dilutions are given as a guide only. It is recommended that the user titrate the product for use in their own experiment using appropriate negative and positive controls.
For dilution, use a buffer containing carrier protein, e.g. PBS with 1% BSA or a neutral media containing 10% FCS and freeze in aliquots at -70°C.
Activity: The ED50 is determined to be <0.5 ng/ml in a thymidine uptake assay using BaF3 cells, corresponding to a specific activity of >2 x10^6 units/mg.
Reconstitute to 100 ug/ml using distilled water.
Fibroblast growth factors (FGFs), a heparin binding growth factor, exhibit widespread mitogenic and neurotrophic activities in a variety of different cells including mesenchymal, neuroectodermal and endothelial cells. aFGF (FGF-1) and bFGF (FGF-2) are present in relatively high levels in CNS. aFGF is expressed by a subset of neuronal populations, while bFGF is expressed by astrocytes, both lack signal peptides. Human bFGF is a 17.2 kDa protein containing 155 amino acid residues.
