DescriptionFibroblast Growth Factor 10 (FGF-10) is a growth factor that is important during embryonic development, especially during lung, limb, brain, heart, and kidney morphogenesis. FGF-10 is expressed in mesenchymal cells and facilitates epithelial-mesenchymal signaling through binding the epithelially expressed FGF receptor 2b (FGFR2b). FGF-10 also functions as a mitogen for keratinizing epidermal cells and induces the migration and invasion of cancer cells.
Activity AssayHuman FGF-10 is fully biologically active when compared to standard. The activity is determined by a proliferation assay using 4MBr-5 cells and it is typically less than 200 ng/ml. This corresponds to an expected specific activity of 5.0 x 103 units/mg.
