Description

Fibroblast growth factor 2 (FGF2) or basic FGF  is used to support the maintenance of human embryonic stem cells and proliferation and differentiation of induced pluripotent and mesenchymal stem cells. FGF2 from zebrafish has been used extensively to support the maintenance of human stem cells (1–3).

Mature domain of zebrafish FGF2 (residues 2-154, Uniprot: B3DGE3) expressed in E.coli and purified to homogeneity as described in Ludwig et al. (2)
Protein is provided in PBS without carrier protein at 2-10mg/ml.

Please visit our FGF2 protein page for full details and batch specific data.

We take the quality of our products very seriously. All our proteins are produced in-house by our scientists and we understand the potential impact on your work if your growth factors and cytokines are not consistent and of the highest quality.  We provide comprehensive quality data for every batch.

    We have also used the FGF2 for pancreatic cancer sphere systems and it seems to support the growth of the cells as we would expect. University of Oxford, UK.
