Catalog #F4212-75A
SourceRecombinant corresponding to 195aa from human Fibroblast Growth Factor 17 expressed in E. coli.
Molecular Weight~22.7kD
Endotoxin ~0.1ng/ug
Biological ActivityED50 <0.5ng/ml (>2x106units/mg), determined by the dose dependent stimulation of thymidine uptake by BaF3 cells expressing FGF-receptors. FGF-17 is a heparin binding growth factor that is involved in controlling tissue growth and morphogenesis. It has been found in the embryo at the midbrain-hindbrain junction, in telencephalondiencephalon transition, in the smooth muscle of major artery walls, in chondrocytes, osteoblast precursors and in mesenchymal cells.
