Recombinant mouse IL-16 is a non-glycosylated protein, containing 127 amino acids, with a molecular weight of 13.2 kDa. Purity is typically greater than 98% and endotoxin level less than 1 EU/ug.
The expected biological activity (ED50) is determined by the ability to chemoattract primary human T cells and is typically less than 200 ng/mL. The specific activity of this protein is 5x10^3 units/mg.
Reconstitute using sterile water at 0.1 mg/mL and centrifuge prior to opening vial. Gently pipet solution down the sides of the vial. DO NOT VORTEX sample. Store reconstituted material at -20°C and add 0.1% BSA for additional stability.

Fibroblast Growth Factors, FGFs, are a 22 member family of proteins known to be involved in angiogenesis, wound healing and embryonic development. As a family, they bind to heparin and signal through four receptor tyrosine kinases called, FGFR1, 2, 3 and 4. FGF-acidic, or FGF1, is a particularly potent inducer of DNA synthesis and has chemotactic activities.
