Cat. No. : FGF4-023E
Description : FGF­4, the product of a developmentally regulated gene (hst­1), is a member of the FGF family that is efficiently secreted. The gene for FGF­4 (also known as FGFK of K­FGF for Kaposi sarcoma­associated FGF) was initially discovered as a transforming gene by the NIH ­3T3 focus formation assay using DNA derived from human tumors (including stomach and colon cancers, hepatocellular carcinomas, and Kaposi"s sarcomas). FGF­4 does not seem to be expressed in normal adult tissues. However, expression of the gene is spatially and temporally regulated during embryonic development. In vitro, FGF­4 is mitogenic for fibroblasts and endothelial cells. FGF­4 has been shown to be a potent angiogenesis promoter in vivo. FGF­4 has potent transforming potential apparently through an autocrine mechanism of action. FGF­4 plays a key role in limb development and has been identified as the molecular mediator of the activities of the apical ectodermal ridge that is required for directing the outgrowth and patterning of vertebrate limbs.

Endotoxin Leve : <1.0 EU per 1 μg of the protein by the LAL method.
Purity : >97%, by SDS­PAGE under reducing conditions and visualized by silver stain.
Formulation : Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS. See Certificate of Analysis for details.
Reconstitution : Reconstitute at 0.2 mg/mL in sterile PBS.
Shipping : The product is shipped at ambient temperature. Upon receipt, store it immediately at the temperature recommended below.
Storage : Use a manual defrost freezer and avoid repeated freeze­thaw cycles. 1. 12 months from date of receipt, ­20 to ­70 °C as supplied. 2. 1 month, 2 to 8 °C under sterile conditions after reconstitution. 3. 3 months, ­20 to ­70 °C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.
