Source: E. coli derived
Purity: >95% by SDS-PAGE
Endotoxin Level: <1EU/ug
Molecular Weight: 19kDa
Formulation: Lyophilized from a 0.2μm filtered solution in PBS without carrier protein
The activity was measured by its ability to stimulate the proliferation of 4MBr-5 cells (monkey epithelial cell line).
Briefly centrifuge the vial before opening. It is recommended to reconstitute the protein in sterile PBS containing 0.1% endotoxin-free recombinant human serum albumin.
Stability & Storage
Use a manual defrost freezer and avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles. In general: 12 months from date of receipt, -20 to -80°C as supplied. 1 month, 2 to 8°C under sterile conditions after reconstitution. 3 months, -20 to -80°C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.
FGF7 (KGF) is a member of the fibroblast growth factor family. FGF-7 is expressed in mesenchymal origin cells. FGF-7 is a mitogen factor specific for epithelial cells and keratinocytes. FGF-7 plays a role in kidney and lung development, as well as in angiogenesis and wound healing. FGF7 also plays an important role in the regulation of embryonic development, cell proliferation and cell differentiation. FGF7 is possible major paracrine effector of normal epithelial cell proliferation.
