Human FGF-2 / bFGF 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-derived component free (ACDF) and carrier-protein free (CF).

FGF2 activity is determined using the Promega serum response element luciferase reporter assay (*) in transfected HEK293T cells. EC50 = 0.2 ng/ml (11.7 pM).
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. Data from Qk027 lot #012
*Promega pGL4.33[luc2P/SRE/Hygro] #E1340
FGF2 migrates as major band at 17 kDa in non-reducing conditions and upon reduction.
Purified recombinant protein (7 µg) was resolved using 15% w/v SDS-PAGE in reduced (+β-mercaptothanol, R) and non-reduced conditions (NR) and stained with Coomassie Brilliant Blue R250. Data from Qk027 lot #010
