Mouse Fibroblast Growth Factor basic (bFGF / FGF-2)
Fibroblast Growth Factors, FGFs, are a 22 member family of proteins known to be involved in angiogenesis, wound healing and embryonic development. As a family, they bind to heparin and signal through four receptor tyrosine kinases called, FGFR1, 2, 3 and 4. Although the mechanism remains unclear, FGF-basic is a critical component in keeping embryonic stem cells undifferentiated in cell culture systems. Recombinant mouse FGF is a non-gylcosylated protein, containing 145 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 16.3 kDa.
