FGF-Basic (AA 1-155) is a bioactive protein intended for use in cell culture applications. Fibroblast growth factor-basic is known as FGF-basic, bFGF, FGF 2, FGF-β, and heparin binding growth factor. FGF-basic is involved in a number of biological processes, including embryonic development and differentiation, neuron differentiation, survival, regeneration, and the proliferation of cells of mesodermal origin and many cells of neuroectodermal, ectodermal, and endodermal origin. Features of recombinant human FGF-basic:

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

High-purity, recombinant, bioactive protein
Human FGF-basic (AA 1-155) is one of our more than 250 available recombinant proteins. To help ensure our 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 recombinant proteins includes cell proliferation, cytotoxicity, chemotaxis, calcium flux, secondary cytokine up-regulation, induction of surface antigen expression, antiviral, and protease assays. Recombinant human FGF-basic specific activity is determined by the dose dependent proliferation of BALB/3T3 cells.

Proven compatibility
Our recombinant 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.
