Recombinant Human FGF 8
- Product Type
- Recombinant Protein
- FGF 8
|Recombinant human FGF8 is an E. coli-derived protein corresponding to amino acids 23-215 of human fibroblast growth factor 8. FGF8 is a secreted peptide that promotes cell growth in an autocrine manner.
The peptide sequence contains an initiator methionine at the N-terminus and is homologous to the murine, canine and bovine sequences.
PHP130 has an ED50 of <0.5ng/ml as determined by dose-dependent thymidine uptake in BaF3 cells expressing FGF receptors.
