  • 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
    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 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.

Images

  • Standard Curve for FGF basic (Analyte: FGF basic protein (Active) (ab9596)); dilution range 1pg/ml to 1ug/ml using Capture Antibody Mouse monoclonal [AS24] to FGF basic (ab17279) at 1ug/ml and Detector Antibody Rabbit monoclonal [EP1735] to FGF basic (ab92337) at 0.5ug/ml.
  • Human embryonic stem cells (H9) were differentiated both as embryoid bodies and monolayer cultures (on Matrigel) using a protocol described in Kennedy et al., 2007. BMP-4, FGF-basic (ab9596) and VEGF (ab9571) were sequentially added to the media to direct differentiation. These images were taken at day 8, where cell adhesion antigens CD31 (ab32457 in green) and CD34 (ab8536 in red) are abundant and represent primitive haematopoietic cells within the culture. Dapi staining is shown in blue.

Answer

Thank you for your enquiry and thank you very much for your patience. I do apologize for the delay, it some time to get this information from the originator of these peptides. For each of the products listed, included is the concentration of each product prior to vialing and the volume required for each sample size listed. Ab9863: 10mg/ml 50ul/vial = 500ug Ab9587: 1mg/ml 100ul/vial = 100ug Ab9596: 2mg/ml 25ul/vial = 50ug If you have any additional questions, please contact us again.
