Recombinant Human/Mouse Fibroblast Growth Factor 8B/FGF-8B
Recombinant Human/Mouse Fibroblast growth factor 8B is produced by our E.coli expression system and the target gene encoding Gln23-Arg215 is expressed. Bon Opus Cat. #C798
BackgroundFibroblast growth factor 8 (FGF-8) is a member of the fibroblast growth factor family. It is discovered as a growth factor essential for the androgen--dependent growth of mouse mammary carcinoma cells. Mouse FGF-8b shares 100% aa identity with human FGF-8b. FGF-8 is widely expressed during embryogenesis, and mediates epithelial--mesenchymal transitions. It plays an important role in the regulation of embryonic development, cell proliferation, cell differentiation and cell migration. It is required for normal brain, eye, ear, limb development during embryogenesis and normal development of the gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) neuronal system.
FormulationLyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution of PBS, pH7.4.
