DescriptionFibroblast Growth Factor 4 (FGF-4) is a secreted growth factor that is predominantly expressed during bone morphogenesis and embryonic limb development. FGF-4 is an important growth regulator for stem cells, fibroblasts, and endothelial cells. FGF-4 contains a single N-linked glycosylation signal. However, in vitro studies suggest that unglycosylated FGF-4 is cleaved into 13 kDa and 15 kDa truncated proteins that have greater biological activity than the wild type 19 kDa FGF-4 protein. Human FGF-4 shares high homology and is cross-reactive with mouse FGF-4.
Activity AssayHuman FGF-4 is fully biologically active when compared to standard. The activity is determined by the dose-dependent induced proliferation of NR6R-3T3 cells and it is typically less than 5 ng/ml. This corresponds to an expected specific activity of 2.0 x 105 units/mg.

|≥95% determined by reducing and non-reducing SDS-PAGE
|≤1.00 EU/μg as measured by kinetic LAL
|Lyophilized from a sterile (0.2 micron) filtered aqueous solution containing 10 mM sodium phosphate, 75 mM sodium chloride, pH 7.5
|Centrifuge vial before opening. When reconstituting the product, gently pipet and wash down the sides of the vial to ensure full recovery of the protein into solution. It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized product with sterile water at 0.1 mg/ml, which can be further diluted into other aqueous solutions.
|Stability and Storage
12 months from date of receipt when stored at -20°C to -80°C as supplied. 1 month when stored at 4°C after reconstituting as directed. 3 months when stored at -20°C to -80°C after reconstituting as directed.
