Description

Recombinant Human Fibroblast Growth Factor 7 (FGF7, Keratinocyte Growth Factor, KGF) is a bioactive protein intended for use in cell culture applications. FGF7 induces proliferation for many epithelial cells but not for fibroblasts and endothelial cells. It is a major growth factor for skin keratinocytes.

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 Fibroblast Growth Factor 7 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 Fibroblast Growth Factor 7 (FGF7, KGF) is specific activity is determined by measuring the dose-dependent stimulation of thymidine incorporation by KGF-responsive 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.
