Recombinant Human Fibroblast Growth Factor Basic (AA 1-155) (also known as FGF Basic, bFGF, FGF 2, FGF-β or Heparin Binding Growth Factor) is a bioactive protein intended for use in cell culture applications. FGF-basic is involved in a number of biological processes including embryonic development and differentiation, neuron differentiation, survival, and regeneration, and the proliferation of cells of mesodermal origin and many cells of neuroectodermal, ectodermal, and endodermal origin.

—Gibco® proteins bioassayed with Gibco® mediaHigh Purity Recombinant Bioactive Protein
Recombinant Human Fibroblast Growth Factor Basic (AA 1-155) 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 the dose dependent proliferation of BALB/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
