|Description||Basic Fibroblast Growth Factor (bFGF) is a family member of the cell-differentiating and growth promoting factors. Basic FGF exists as multiple isoforms ranging from 18-24kDa that are derived from a single mRNA species under unique translational conditions. The 18kDa isoform is primarily cytosolic, but is also secreted and may form reservoirs of bFGF in the extracellular matrix. In contrast, the larger isoforms are predominantly nuclear. At the cellular level, bFGF is a potent mitogen and promotes cell survival by inhibiting apoptosis. At the tissue level, it is involved in wound repair and induces angiogenesis. In addition, bFGF is a significant target in cancer research because it is over-expressed in some cancers and may enhance a tumor's metastatic potential.|
1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
2. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
4. Please refer to us for technical protocols.
