Human Keratinocyte Growth Factor ( KGF/ FGF7 )

Background

Keratinocyte Growth Factor (KGF), also known as Fibroblast Growth Factor 7 (FGF-7), is a member of fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family. Although FGF-7 has heparin binding activity similar to FGF-1, its mitogenic activity is predominantly exhibited in keratinocytes. It is not effective to fibroblasts and endothelial cells.
The human FGF-7 lacking the signal sequence (1-31 aa) was expressed in E. coli and purified by the chromatographic procedures. This product is an intact enzyme without tag with 19 kDa size (Fig.) 

Data Link  GeneID: 2252, Gene Sequence: M60828.1,  Amino Acid Sequence: P21781

Application

1. Mitogen for epithelial cells
2. Western blot control for anti-FGF-7 antibodies
3. Acceleration of wound healing is implied.
4. Acceleration of hair development is implied.
