Description

Recombinant Human Fibroblast Growth Factor Basic (also known as FGF Basic, bFGF, FGF 2, FGF-β or Heparin Binding Growth Factor) is a bioactive protein intended for use in cell culture applications. FGF Basic is used in studies of angiogenesis, mitogenesis of fibroblasts, neurite outgrowth in PC-12 cells, receptor binding, and tyrosine protein kinase phosphorylation.

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 Basic 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 Basic (FGF Basic, bFGF) specific activity is determined by thymidine incorporation into serum-starved Balb/c 3T3 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.
