Recombinant Human Fibroblast Growth Factor 7/FGF-7/KGF (C-6His)
Recombinant Human Fibroblast Growth Factor 7 is produced by our Mammalian expression system and the target gene encoding Cys32-Thr194 is expressed with a 6His tag at the C-terminus. Bon Opus Cat. #CM88
BackgroundFibroblast growth factor 7 (FGF7) is a secreted protein which is mainly located in epithelial cells and belongs to the heparin-binding growth factors family. FGF family members possess broad mitogenic and cell survival activities, and are involved in a variety of biological processes, including embryonic development, cell growth, morphogenesis, tissue repair, tumor growth and invasion. FGF7 is a potent epithelial cell-specific growth factor, whose mitogenic activity is predominantly exhibited in keratinocytes but not in fibroblasts and endothelial cells. It is possible major paracrine effector of normal epithelial cell proliferation.
FormulationLyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution of PBS, pH7.4.
