  • Function
    Plays an important role in the regulation of cell survival, cell division, angiogenesis, cell differentiation and cell migration. Functions as potent mitogen in vitro. Can induce angiogenesis (PubMed:23469107).
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in granulosa and cumulus cells. Expressed in hepatocellular carcinoma cells, but not in non-cancerous liver tissue.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the heparin-binding growth factors family.
  • Post-translational
    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 localization
    Secreted. 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.

I have received further information from lab. Unfortunately lab has confirmed that because they do not have any tested data of these antibodies being used as pairs in sELISA and also due to non availability of epitope sequence they are unable to confirm the sue of these products in sELISA.

I am sorry I am not very helpful this time. Should you have any other question please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for your email.

We unfortunately have not tested any of these antibodies in sandwich ELISA so we will not be able to confirm their use. Technically, sELISA application needs two antibodies (sELISA pair) which should be raised against different part of immunogen to avoid any interference between the two; the pair should be tested in sELISA.

For these antibodies, also the immunogenic epitope sequence is not available yet so we can't recommend which ab should be used as detection or capture antibody. It seems, these antibodies are tested in indirect ELISA so we are happy to guarantee the iELISA application.

To know more about the sELISA specificity I have sent an email to my colleagues for double checking if these can be used as sELISA pairs. I will send you the information soon.

I can suggest trying these antibodies in sELISA however please note because all of these antibodies are monoclonal so either you will need to conjugate one of these antibodies or you will need an anti-mouse conjugated tertiary antibody. The positive thing, these antibodies have different isotypes so the anti mouse tertiary antibody you would need could be against a particular isotype e.g. IgG2a which should not cross react with IgG1.

Alternatively we have conjugation kits available in case you are interested in conjugating one of these antibody with HRP or other conjugates. The catalogue numbers are:

ab102892, ab102890, ab102891, ab102889 etc.


I hope this information will be helpful. Should you have any other question please do not hesitate to contact me.

Gracias por contactarnos de nuevo.

¿Podrías por favor indicarme el número de pedido en el que se enviaron los anticuerpos? ¿En qué estado se recibieron? ¿Nada más recibirlos se alicuotaron y guardaron a -20C?

¿En qué aplicación y especies se están usando?

Te agradezco que nos facilites estos detalles para poder entender mejor qué ha podido ocurrir para que ninguno de los tres anticuerpos funcione.

Gracias por la colaboración. Quedo a la espera de tu respuesta.

Thank you for contacting us with your question.

We have 3 different lots in stock and as the concentration varies between these lots, I have created individual documents for each lot. If you require a document for a different lot, please let me know and I can create one for you.

We are only able to provide a certificate of compliance (CoC) for our antibodies, so I have generated these and they are attached to this email.

I hope this will be useful, but if there is anything else that we can do for you, please let me know and I'll be happy to help.
