Species of Origin
His Tag (C-term)
Lyophilized from a 0.2 µm filtered solution of PBS, pH 8.0.
>98% as determined by SDS-PAGE analysis.
The protein has a calculated MW of 21.11 kDa.
The protein migrates as 20 kDa under reducing condition (SDS-PAGE analysis).
Measure by its ability to induce 3T3 cells proliferation. The ED₅₀ for this effect is 1.3-2.0 ng/mL. The specific activity of recombinant human FGF-18 is > 5 x 10⁵ IU/mg.
<0.1 EU per 1 μg of the protein by the LAL method.
Fibroblast Growth Factors-18 (FGF-18) is a 24 kDa member of the fibroblast Growth Factors with 207 amino acid residues. FGF-18 is mainly expressed from glandular and luminal cells, cardiomyocytes, breast myoepithelial cells and endometrial ciliated cells. FGF-18 involved cell proliferation, cell differentiation and cell migration. FGF-18 is an important role in skeletal growth and development, stimulates hepatic and intestinal proliferation.
zFGF5, Fibroblast Growth Factors 18
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized protein in sterile H₂O to a concentration not less than 200 μg/mL and incubate the stock solution for at least 20 min to ensure sufficient re-dissolved.
