Recombinant FGF-2 Bovine

For research use only

Basic Fibroblast Growth Factor, known as FGF basic or FGF-2, is a member of the fibroblast growth factor FGF family.

FGF-2 controls fundamental biological processes, including cell growth and differentiation, tissue formation, tissue repair and angiogenesis. It’s commonly used as an ingredient for serum-free culture media for cultivated meat, cell culture applications, and for veterinary research applications.

  • Source

    Our recombinant bovine FGF-2 growth factor is produced in non-GMO insects, specifically in Trichoplusia ni (cabbage moth) with the Baculovirus Expression Vector System (BEVS).

  • Sequence

    Bovine FGF-2 recombinant protein is a monomeric peptide of 155 amino acid residues.


  • Formulation

    Phosphate 20mM; NaCl 500mM; Tween20 0.05%; pH 7.5

  • Purity

    > 80% measured by SDS page, and resolved under reduced (R) and non-reduced (NR) conditions. Higher purity available upon request.

  • Biological Activity

    ED50 <5 ng/ml in cellular/luciferase assays determined by the FGF2 dose dependent activation of the EF-1α promoter in 2 INDFH-NucRedLight cells. Determine the optimal concentration for each specific application using an initial dose response assay.
