Preparation: Produced from sera of rabbits immunized with highly pure Recombinant Human FGF-17. Anti-Human FGF-17-specific antibody was purified by affinity chromatography employing an immobilized Human FGF-17 matrix.
Sandwich ELISA: To detect Human FGF-17 by sandwich ELISA (using 100 µL/well antibody solution) a concentration of 0.5-2.0 µg/mL of this antibody is required. This antigen affinity purified antibody, in conjunction with PeproTech Biotinylated Anti-Human FGF-17 (500-P152Bt) as a detection antibody, allows the detection of at least 0.2-0.4 ng/well of Recombinant Human FGF-17.
Western Blot: To detect Human FGF-17 by Western Blot analysis this antibody can be used at a concentration of 0.1- 0.2 µg/mL. Used in conjunction with compatible secondary reagents the detection limit for Recombinant Human FGF-17 is 1.5-3.0 ng/lane, under either reducing or non-reducing conditions.
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family. FGF family members possess broad mitogenic and cell survival activities, and are involved in a variety of biological processes including embryonic development cell growth, morphogenesis, tissue repair, tumor growth and invasion. This gene was shown to be prominently expressed in the cerebellum and cortex. The mouse homolog of this gene was localized to specific sites in the midline structures of the forebrain, the midbrain-hindbrain junction, developing skeleton and developing arteries, which suggests a role in central nervous system, bone and vascular development. This gene was referred to as FGF-13 in reference 2, however, its amino acid sequence and chromosomal localization are identical to FGF17.
