recombinant human/rat/bovine/porcine FGF-10 protein (Qk003)

Human/rat/porcine/bovine FGF10 protein promotes lung organoid formation and induces branching morphology.  FGF10 protein is used widely in organoid culture, embryonic stem cell (ESC) and induced-pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) differentiation, and for the study of epithelial to mesenchymal transition and tumor metastasis.

High purity and bioactivity 17 kDa non-glycosylated, bioactive domain of human fibroblast growth factor 10, animal-derived component free (ACDF) and carrier-protein free (CF).

bioactivity

Human FGF-10 Qk003 bioactivity EMT immunofluorescence lot #010

Result: FGF10 supports epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) in human primary keratinocytes. Data and evaluation by Stemnovate Ltd.

Epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) is a crucial morphogenetic process during development in which cells lose their epithelial characteristics and acquire migratory mesenchymal properties. Human FGF10 protein has an important role both during the embryonic EMT (type I) and on cancer cell initiation of metastasis (type III EMT).

Induction of EMT in human primary keratinocytes following treatment with FGF-10. Induction of EMT was evaluated using immunofluorescence staining to determine expression of the epithelial marker (Cytokeratin 14 [CK14]) and mesenchymal marker (α-Smooth Muscle Actin [αSMA]) in human primary epidermal keratinocytes after 4 days treatment with FGF-10 (0-100 ng/ml).

protein background

Fibroblast growth factor 10 (FGF10) is involved in a number of different embryo and adult cell and tissue types, including mesenchymal, neuronal and epithelial cells. Human FGF10 protein is expressed in the mesenchyme and functions through interacting with the epithelial FGF Receptor 2b (Fgfr2b)1. It has also been shown to interact weakly with FGF Receptor 1b2. The mature form of human FGF10 protein is an approximately 20 kDa protein highly similar to FGF7 and with a serine-rich region near its N-terminus3. It is secreted by mesenchymal cells and is bound and activated by extracellular FGF-BP4.

Human fibroblast growth factor 10 is first active in the limb bud mesoderm where it creates and maintains FGF signalling with epithelial FGF8, then drives a positive feedback loop accumulating mesenchyme in the growing bud, and finally induces the apical ectodermal ridge which ultimately gives rise to feet and hands5. Lung development is based on the same epithelial-mesenchymal FGF mediations involving FGF10 from the foregut mesenchyme signalling to FGFR2 in the foregut epithelium6.

Furthermore, FGF10 protein is involved in the development of white adipose tissue, heart, liver, brain, kidney, thymus, inner ear, tongue, trachea, eye, prostate, salivary gland and mammary gland. It has been shown to induce migration and invasion of pancreatic cancer cells and to be associated with breast cancer risk, and patients with FGF10 haploinsufficiency present symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Human recombinant FGF10 protein also drives the differentiation of embryonic stem cells into gut-like structures, cardiomyocytes and hepatocytes1.

Induction of EMT in primary keratinocytes
Cell proliferation assays to assess the effect of Qkine FGF10 (0-100 ng/ml) on human primary epidermal keratinocytes in serum-free keratinocyte media. Cells were evaluated at culture days: 0 (baseline), 1, 2, 3, 4 days, as summarized schematically in Figure 1a. Figure 1b shows cell proliferation (Relative Luminescence Unit [RFU]) for days 1, 2, 3, 4 and normalized to day 0 readouts (n=3; P*<0.05 vs control). The log concentration plot in Figure 1c shows percent cell proliferation normalized over untreated control (%) and to day 0 (baseline) after 4 days treatment (n=3; P*<0.05). The maximal cell proliferation was observed at ~10ng/ml FGF10 and a reduction in cell number/viability as observed at 100 ng/ml. Data provided by Stemnovate Ltd, Cambridge, UK.
