FGF7 Subfamily (FGF7, FGF10, FGF22… and sometimes FGF3)
For this Growth Factor Focus week, we want to take a closer look at the FGF7 subfamily of Fibroblast...

Recombinant Human Fibroblast Growth Factor 10
Keratinocyte Growth Factor 2
FGF10/KGF2 is a member of the Fibroblast Growth Factor family of proteins. KGF2 cDNA encodes a 208 amino acid residue protein with a hydrophobic amino-terminal signal peptide. Human KGF2 shares 92% and 95% amino acid sequence identity with mouse and rat KGF2, respectively. In the FGF family, KGF2 is most closely related to FGF7 (KGF1), FGF3 and FGF22 (see additional information). The expression of KGF2 transcript has been shown to be most abundant in the embryo and adult lung. Recombinant KGF2 has been shown to be mitogenic for epithelial and epidermal cells but not fibroblasts. KGF2 may play unique roles in brain and lung development, wound healing and limb bud formation.

Storage/Handling: This lyophilized preparation is stable at 2-8°C, but should be kept at -20°C for long term storage. The reconstituted sample can be apportioned into working aliquots and stored at -80 °C for up to 6 months. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles.
Reconstitution: The sample should be briefly centrifuged prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Reconstitute in a siliconized tube using PBS that contains a 0.1% BSA to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. Reconstituted solutions are stable for up to one week at 2-8°C. Stock solutions should be aliquoted and stored at -80°C. Further dilutions should be made in appropriate buffered solutions containing BSA or serum and 1 µg/ml heparin.
