Bovine/porcine FGF2 protein (bFGF/basic FGF) for development of species specific bovine (cow) and porcine (pig) cellular agriculture protocols and veterinary research applications.
FGF-2 is used extensively in maintenance and proliferation of induced pluripotent (iPSC) and embryonic stem cells (ESC)1-3 and for enhancement of proliferation in primary cell culture.
High purity 16 kDa FGF-2 / bFGF protein, animal-derived component free (ACDF) and carrier-protein free (CF).
Orders are typically shipped same or next day (except Friday). Easy world-wide shipping.

FGF-2 activity is determined using the Promega serum response element luciferase reporter assay (*) in transfected HEK293T cells. EC50 = 160 pg/ml (10 pM).
Cells are treated in triplicate with a serial dilution of FGF-2 for 3 hours. Firefly luciferase activity is measured and normalized to the control Renilla luciferase activity. Data from Qk040 lot #104301.

Bovine/porcine FGF-2 migrates as a single major band at 16 kDa in non-reducing (NR) conditions and some dimeric protein migrating at 32 kDa. Upon reduction (R), only the 16 kDa band is visible. No contaminating protein bands are visible.
Purified recombinant protein (3 µg) was resolved using 15% w/v SDS-PAGE in reduced (+β-mercaptothanol, R) and non-reduced (NR) conditions and stained with Coomassie Brilliant Blue R250. Data from Qk040 batch #104301.

We are a company founded and run by scientists to provide a service and support innovation in stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. All our products are exceptionally high purity, with complete characterisation and bioactivity analysis on every lot.
Fibroblast growth factor 2 (FGF-2) – also known as basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) – has a broad range of physiological roles including regulation of cell proliferation and differentiation. FGF-2 is used to support the maintenance of human embryonic stem cells and proliferation and differentiation of induced pluripotent and mesenchymal stem cells.
We welcome all feedback and specialist collaborator data on all our products. If you would like to provide application-specific feedback for bovine/porcine FGF2, please contact us email@example.com
