Recombinant human FGF2 protein (154 aa) is a highly bioactive, long–form of human fibroblast growth factor 2 protein. FGF-2 protein is used to support the maintenance of human embryonic stem cells and proliferation and differentiation of induced pluripotent and mesenchymal stem cells. This 154 aa form of FGF-2 comprises the core structured region and N-terminal extension.
High purity and bioactivity 17 kDa FGF-2 / bFGF protein, animal-free (AOF) and carrier-protein free (CF).

This protein has recently been reformulated and will now arrive lyophilized. This change has been made to provide enhanced stability to ensure that we offer the best customer experience in terms of shipping and storage and to align with our company sustainability goals. Please visit our reconstitution page or contact email@example.com for further information or to request the previous datasheet.
FGF-2 154 aa activity is determined using the Promega serum response element luciferase reporter assay (*) in transfected HEK293T cells. Cells are treated in triplicate with a serial dilution of FGF2 for 6 hours. Firefly luciferase activity is measured and normalized to the control Renilla luciferase activity.
EC50 = 11.3 pM (0.19 ng/mL).

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 (FGF2) – also known as basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) – has a broad range of physiological roles including regulation of cell proliferation and differentiation. FGF2 is used to support the maintenance of human embryonic stem cells1-3 and proliferation and differentiation of induced pluripotent and mesenchymal stem cells.
Our products are for research use only and not for diagnostic or therapeutic use. Products are not for resale.
