FGF-8 Human Recombinant is a single, glycosylated, polypeptide chain (23-215 a.a) containing a total of 204 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 23.7 kDa.
FGF-8 is fused to a 6 a.a his-Tag at C-terminus and is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Sterile Filtered colorless solution.
The FGF-8 solution (0.25mg/ml) contains 10% Glycerol and Phosphate-Buffered Saline (pH 7.4).
Store at 4°C if entire vial will be used within 2-4 weeks. Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 90% as obsereved by SDS-PAGE.
The ED50 is ≤5 µg/ml, measured in a cell proliferation assay using Balb/3T3 mouse embryonic fibroblast cells in the presence of 10ug/ml of heparin.
