DescriptionFibroblast Growth Factor 9 (FGF-9) is a mitogen and survival factor for nerve and mesenchymal cells. FGF-9 functions as an autocrine and paracrine factor to support the growth and survival of motor neurons and prostate tissue. FGF-9 expression in the gonad is also necessary for sex determination.
Activity AssayHuman FGF-9 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 2 ng/ml. This corresponds to an expected specific activity higher than 5.0 x 105 units/mg.
