FGF-17 is a member of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family. FGFs share 30 70% amino acid (aa) identity in a conserved, approximately 120 amino acid core domain. FGFs play multiple roles in biological functions, including angiogenesis, mitogenesis, cell differentiation and wound repair. FGF17 plays an important role in the regulation of embryonic development and as signaling molecule in the induction and patterning of the embryonic brain. It is also expressed in hindgut, parts of the developing skeleton, tail bud, major arteries, and heart. In many of these areas, it is expressed along with FGF-8, but slightly later. It is required for normal brain development.
Recombinant Mouse FGF-17 Protein (His Tag)(Active)
Measured in a cell proliferation assay using Balb/3T3 mouse fibroblast cells. The ED50 for this effect is 1.26 ug/ml, in the presence of 10 µg/mL heparin.
Recombinant Mouse Fibroblast Growth Factor 17 is produced by our E.coli expression system and the target gene encoding Thr23-Thr216 is expressed with a 6His tag at the C-terminus.
This product is provided as lyophilized powder which is shipped with ice packs.
