FGF-8 (AF)

Fibroblast Growth Factor 8 (FGF-8) is a critical factor in embryonic development of the brain structure and also required for normal development of the eye, ear and limbs. FGF-8 has broad functions that involve proliferation, differentiation and cell migration. Inappropriate expression of FGF-8 is linked to increased tumor growth and angiogenesis. There is 100% homology between human and mouse FGF-8. FGF-8 is a non-glycosylated protein containing 194 amino acids, with a total molecular weight of 22.5 kDa.

Product Type:
Peptides & proteins
Alternative Names:
Androgen-induced growth factor, AIGF, Heparin-binding growth factor 8, HBGF-8
Storage Temp:
Limit of Detection:
22.5 kDa
PURITY (MIN.): ≥95
Additional Information:
Produced using animal free raw components and processes, in a non-mammalian system. Ideal for researchers concerned about the risks and effects of contaminating viruses, prions and trace growth factors from FBS and animal-derived ingredients used in standard recombinant protein production techniques. Endotoxin levels are less than 1.0 EU per ug protein via LAL. Bioactivity is comparable to recombinant protein produced in traditional techniques.
