Description of Human FGF-6

Recombinant Human FGF-6 is a 169 amino acid protein, with a molecular mass of 18,9 kDa. Fibroblast Growth Factor-6 (FGF-6) is a secreted, heparin-binding growth factor belonging to the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family. FGF family members possess extensive mitogenic and cell survival functions, and are involved in various biological processes, including embryonic development, cell growth, morphogenesis, tissue repair, tumor growth and invasion. FGF-6 is expressed in leukemia cell lines with platelet megakaryocytic differentiation potential. It signals through FGFR 1c, 2c, and 4. The FGF6 gene displays oncogenic transforming activity when transfected into mammalian cells. The mouse homolog of the FGF6 gene displays a restricted expression profile predominantly in the myogenic lineage, suggesting a role in muscle regeneration or differentiation.


Biological Activity

The ED50 of ≤ 0.5ng/ml was determined by the dose-dependent stimulation of thymidine uptake of BaF3 cells. It corresponds to a specific activity of ≥ 2.0 x 106 units/mg.



We recommend a quick spin followed by reconstitution in water to a concentration of at least 100 g/ml. Do not vortex. This solution can be stored at 2-8C for up to 1 week or in working aliquots at -20C to -80C. Working aliquots should be at the highest practical concentration. For long term storage we recommend to add at least 0.1% HSA (order number: or or BSA.



The lyophilized protein is stable at room temperature for up to 1 month and at least until the lot specific expiry date if kept below -18C. Reconstituted FGF-6 should be stored in working aliquots at -20C to -80C if possible with carrier protein. Please avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles.
