FGF6 Protein, Human, Recombinant


FGF6 Protein, Human, Recombinant: Product Information

> 95 % as determined by SDS-PAGE
Please contact us for more information.
Measured in a cell proliferation assay using BALB/c 3T3 mouse fibroblasts. The ED50 for this effect is typically 1-6 ng/mL.
Protein Construction
A DNA sequence encoding the mature form of human FGF6 (Gly41-Ile208) was expressed with a N-terminal Met.
Expressed Host
E. coli
Predicted N Terminal
Molecule Mass
The recombinant human FGF6 consists of 169 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 18.9 KDa. It migrates as an approximately 19 KDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.
Lyophilized from sterile PBS pH 7.4
Please contact us for any concerns or special requirements.
Normally 5 % - 8 % trehalose, mannitol and 0.01% Tween80 are added as protectants before lyophilization.
Please refer to the specific buffer information in the hard copy of CoA.
In general, recombinant proteins are provided as lyophilized powder which are shipped at ambient temperature.
Bulk packages of recombinant proteins are provided as frozen liquid. They are shipped out with blue ice unless customers require otherwise.
Stability & Storage
Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt at -20℃ to -80℃
Store it under sterile conditions at -20℃ to -80℃. It is recommended that the protein be aliquoted for optimal storage. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
A hardcopy of COA with reconstitution instruction is sent along with the products. Please refer to it for detailed information.

FGF6 Background Information

FGF6, also known as FGF-6, belongs to the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family. Members of this family possess broad mitogenic and cell survival activities, and are involved in a variety of biological processes, including embryonic development, cell growth, morphogenesis, tissue repair, tumor growth and invasion. FGF6 plays an important role in the regulation of cell proliferation, cell differentiation, angiogenesis and myogenesis. It is also required for normal muscle regeneration. FGF6 gene displayed oncogenic transforming activity when transfected into mammalian cells.
