Description

Recombinant Human Acidic Fibroblast Growth Factor (acidic FGF, aFGF, Heparin Binding Growth Factor – 1, HBGF-1) is a bioactive protein intended for use in cell culture applications. Acidic FGF is used in studies on angiogenesis and mitogenesis of fibroblasts; tyrosine phosphorylation studies; neurite outgrowth studies in PC-12 cells, and receptor binding studies.

High purity—no interference from other proteins or contaminants
High biological activity—more results with less protein
Proven compatibility—Gibco® proteins bioassayed with Gibco® media

High purity recombinant bioactive protein
Recombinant Human Acidic Fibroblast Growth Factor is one of our more than 250 available Gibco® recombinant proteins. To help ensure Gibco® growth factors are of the highest quality, each protein is analyzed for purity along with structural homogeneity to ensure a biologically active protein.

High biological activity
In-house activity testing of Gibco® Recombinant Proteins includes cell proliferation, cytotoxicity, chemotaxis, calcium flux, secondary cytokine up-regulation, induction of surface antigen expression, antiviral, and protease assays. Recombinant Human Acidic Fibroblast Growth Factor (acidic FGF, aFGF) specific activity is determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of proliferation of BaF3 cells.

Proven compatibility
Gibco® proteins are bioassayed with Gibco® media. Since 1962, Gibco® has been the consistent provider of high quality media, reagents, and sera for reliable cell culture.
