FGF2 (fibroblast growth factor 2 (basic)) is also known as fibroblast growth factor basic, as FGF Basic, bFGF, FGF 2, FGF-β or heparin binding growth factor. Recombinant human FGF2 is a bioactive protein intended for use in cell culture applications. FGF2is used in studies of angiogenesis, mitogenesis of fibroblasts, neurite outgrowth in PC-12 cells, receptor binding, and tyrosine protein kinase phosphorylation.

—Gibco® proteins bioassayed with Gibco® mediaHigh Purity Recombinant Bioactive Protein
Recombinant Human Fibroblast Growth Factor Basic is one of more than 250 Gibco® recombinant proteins available from Life Technologies. To help ensure Gibco® growth factors are of the highest quality, each protein is analyzed for purity along with structural homogeneity to ensure a biologically active protein.High Biological Activity
In-house activity testing of Gibco® Recombinant Proteins includes cell proliferation, cytotoxicity, chemotaxis, calcium flux, secondary cytokine up-regulation, induction of surface antigen expression, antiviral, and protease assays. Recombinant Human Fibroblast Growth Factor Basic (FGF Basic, bFGF) specific activity is determined by thymidine incorporation into serum-starved Balb/c 3T3 cells.Proven Compatibility
Gibco® proteins are bioassayed with Gibco® media. Since 1962, Gibco® has been the consistent provider of high quality media, reagents, and sera for reliable cell culture.See our selection of recombinant Gibco® growth factors
