Technical Data
Fibroblast Growth Factor 16, Recombinant, Human (FGF16)
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
The FGFs play key roles in controlling tissue growth, morphogenesis and repair in animals. FGF-16 is a newly discovered heparin binding growth factor that stimulates the proliferation and activation of cells that express FGF receptors. Recombinant Human FGF-16 is a 23.7kD protein containing 207 amino residues.

Source: E.coli

Form: Supplied as a lyophilized powder from 0.5x PBS, 0.5mM DTT.

Stability: The lyophilized protein is stable for a few weeks at room temperature, but best stored at -20C. Reconstituted FGF-16 should be stored in working aliquots at -20C. Freeze/thaw cycles will result in signi cant loss of activity.

Purity: 98% by SDS-PAGE and HPLC.

Endotoxin: 0.1ng/ug (1EU/ug).

Reconstitution: Reconstitute in dH2O to a concentration of 0.5-1.0mg/ml.

Biological Activity: The ED50 as determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of thymidine uptake by BaF3 cells expressing FGF-receptors is 0.5 ng/ml, corresponding to a speci c activity of 2 x 10e6 units/mg.
