Introduction

Fibroblast Growth Factors (FGFs) comprise a family of at least eighteen structurally realted proteins that are involved in a multitude of physiological and pathological cellular processes, including cell growth, differentation, angiogenesis, wound healing and tumorgenesis. The biological activities of the FGFs are mediated by a family if type I transmembrane tyrosine kinases which undergo dimerization and autophosphorylation after ligand binding. Four distinct genes encoding closely related FGF receptors, FGFR-1to -4 are known. Multiple forms of FGFR-1 to -3 are generated by alternative splicing of the mRNAs. A frequent splicing event involving FGFR-1 and -2 results in receptors containing all three Ig domains, referred to as the alpha isoform, or only IgII and IgIII, referred to as the ? isoform. Only the alpha isoform has been identified for FGFR-3 and FGFR-4. Additional splicing events for FGFR-1 to -3, involving the C-terminal half of the IgIII domain encoded by two mutually exclusive alternative exons, generate FGF receptors with alternative IgIII domains (IIIb and IIIc). A IIIa isoform which is a secreted FGF binding protein containing only the N-terminal half of the IgIII domain plus some intron sequences has also been reported for FGFR-1. Mutations in FGFR-1 to -3 have been found in patients with birth defects involving craniosynostosis.

Description

Soluble FGFR3 Human recombinant fused using a Xa cleavage site with the Fc part of human IgG1 produced in Fc Chimera is a heterodimeric, glycosylated, Polypeptide chain containing 593aa and having a molecular mass of 170kDa. 

Source

Insect Cells.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.

Formulation

FGFR3 was lyophilized from a concentrated (1 mg/ml) sterile solution containing PBS.

Solubility

It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized FGFR-3 in sterile PBS not less than 50µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.

Stability

Lyophilized FGFR3 although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18oC. Upon reconstitution FGFR3 should be stored at 4oC between 2-7 days and for future use below -18oC.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

Purity

Greater than 90.0% as determined by:
(a) Analysis by silver stain.
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
