Length [aa]163
Molecular Weight18.9 kDa
Endotoxin Levels< 0.1 ng/µg of protein (<1EU/µg)
Biological ActivityThe ED50 as determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of thymidine uptake by KGF-responsive BaF3 cells is ≤ 10 ng/ml, corresponding to a specific activity of ≥ 1 x 105 units/mg.
Species ReactivityMouse, Rat, Humnan, Leech
Buffer15mM Sodium Phosphate, pH 7.0 + 25mM NaCl
ReconstitutionCentrifuge the vial prior to opening. Reconstitute in sterile water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml. Do not vortex. This solution can be stored at 2-8°C for up to 1 week. For extended storage, it is recommended to further dilute in a buffer containing a carrier protein (example 0.1% BSA) and store in working aliquots at -20°C to -80°C.
Stability and StorageThe lyophilized protein is stable at room temperature for 3 weeks should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Reconstituted working aliquots are stable for 1 week at 2°C to 8°C and for 3 months at -20°C to -80°C.
SynonymsKGF
DescriptionKeratinocyte Growth Factor (KGF/FGF-7) is one of 23 known members of the FGF family. Proteins of this family play a central role during prenatal development and postnatal growth and regeneration of variety of tissues, by promoting cellular proliferation and differentiation. KGF/FG-7 is a mitogen factor specific for epithelial cells and keratinocytes and signals through FGFR 2b. KGF/FGF-7 plays a role in kidney and lung development, angiogenesis, and wound healing. Recombinant human KGF/FGF-7 is an 18.9 kDa protein consisting of 163 amino acid residues.
