Human Fibroblast Growth Factor 154 basic (FGF-basic 154)
Fibroblast Growth Factors, FGFs, are a 22 member family of proteins known to be involved in angiogenesis, wound healing and embryonic development. As a family, they bind to heparin and signal through four receptor tyrosine kinases called, FGFR1, 2, 3 and 4. Although the mechanism remains unclear, FGF-basic 154 (known as FGF basic) is a critical component in keeping embryonic stem cells undifferentiated in cell culture systems. Recombinant human FGF-b 154 (FGF-2) is a non-glycosylated protein, containing 154 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 17.2 kDa.
