FGF18 Rat Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 180 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 21.0kDa.The FGF 18 Rat is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Fibroblast growth factor 18 (FGF18) is a member of the large FGF family which has at least 23 members. FGF18 is a heparin binding growth factor with a core 120 amino acid FGF domain which allows for a common tertiary structure. FGFs are expressed in the course of the embryonic development and in restricted adult tissues. FGF-18 is an indispensable regulator of long bone and calvarial development. FGF-18 signals via FGFR 1c, 2c, 3c, and 4.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
Lyophilized from a 0.2um filtered concentrated solution in PBS, pH 7.4.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized FGF 18 in sterile 18M?-cm H2O not less than 100
Lyophilized FGF 18 Rat althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution FGF 18 Rat should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
