Technical Data
Fibroblast Growth Factor 10, Recombinant, Human (FGF10)
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
Fibroblast Growth Factor-10 (FGF10) is a heparin binding growth factor that belongs to the FGF family. Proteins of this family play a central role during prenatal development and postnatal growth and regeneration of a variety of tissues, by promoting cellular proliferation and differentiation. FGF10 is most related to KGF/FGF-7 and is expressed during development and preferentially in adult lungs. It signals through FGFR2b.

Human FGF10 is a 19.3kD protein containing 170 amino residues.

Biological Activity:
The ED50 as determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of thymidine uptake by BaF3 cells expressing FGF-receptors is 0.5ng/ml, corresponding to a speci c activity of 2x10e6 units/mg.

Storage and Stability: Lyophilized powder may be stored at -20C. Reconstitute to nominal volume by adding sterile buffer. Aliquot and store at -20C. Reconstituted product is stable for 3 months at -20C with a carier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Aliquot to prevent repeated freeze-thaw cycles. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
