Description

  • Product name

    Recombinant human FGF2 protein (Animal Free)
    See all FGF2 proteins and peptides
  • Biological activity

    Assay 1: Determined by dose-dependent ability to reduce tetrazolium salt, WST-8, by dehydrogenase activities of BaF3 cells expressing FGF receptors using Cell Counting Kit-8 (CCK-8). The expected ED50 is ≤ 0.5 ng/ml corresponding to a specific activity of ≥ 2 x 106 units/mg.

    Assay 2: The ED50 was also determined by a cell proliferation assay using balb/c 3T3 cells is ≤ 0.1 ng/mL, corresponding to a specific activity of ≥ 1 x 107 units/mg.

  • 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.
