Catalogue number





KGF is a member of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family. FGF family members possess broad mitogenic and cell survival activities, and are involved in a variety of biological processes, including embryonic development, cell growth, morphogenesis, tissue repair, tumor growth and invasion. FGF7 is a potent epithelial cell-specific growth factor, whose mitogenic activity is predominantly exhibited in keratinocytes but not in fibroblasts and endothelial cells. Studies of mouse and rat homologs of this gene implicated roles in morphogenesis of epithelium, reepithelialization of wounds, hair development and early lung organogenesis.


KGF Human Recombinant produced in Oryza Sativa is a single, polypeptide chain having a molecular mass of approximately 19.2kDa. The KGF is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques. 


Rice Grain

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.


Lyophilized KGF from a 0.2μm filtered solution containing no stabilizers. 


It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized KGF in sterile 18MΩ-cm at 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.


Lyophilized KGF although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution FGF7 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.


Greater than 95% as determined by SDS-PAGE.

Biological Activity

KGF has full biological activity when compared to standards. The activity is determined by the dose-dependent proliferation of HUVECs and is typically 10ng/ml corresponding to a specific activity of 100,000U/mg.
