  • Application notesNeut: Use at a concentration of 3.5 µg/ml to yield one-half maximal inhibition [ND50] of the biological activity of human FGF basic (FGF2) (5ng/ml) on HUVEC cells.
    WB: Use at a concentration of 0.1 - 0.2 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 17 kDa.

    Not tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • FunctionPlays an important role in the regulation of cell survival, cell division, angiogenesis, cell differentiation and cell migration. Functions as potent mitogen in vitro.
    • Tissue specificityExpressed in granulosa and cumulus cells. Expressed in hepatocellular carcinoma cells, but not in non-cancerous liver tissue.
    • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the heparin-binding growth factors family.
    • Post-translational
      modifications
      Phosphorylation at Tyr-215 regulates FGF2 unconventional secretion.
      Several N-termini starting at positions 94, 125, 126, 132, 143 and 162 have been identified by direct sequencing.
    • Cellular localizationSecreted. Nucleus. Exported from cells by an endoplasmic reticulum (ER)/Golgi-independent mechanism. Unconventional secretion of FGF2 occurs by direct translocation across the plasma membrane. Binding of exogenous FGF2 to FGFR facilitates endocytosis followed by translocation of FGF2 across endosomal membrane into the cytosol. Nuclear import from the cytosol requires the classical nuclear import machinery, involving proteins KPNA1 and KPNB1, as well as CEP57.
