Description of Human FGFR-2 (IIIb) / Fc Chimera, soluble
Recombinant human soluble FGFR-2 (IIIb) was fused via a Xa cleavage site with the Fc part of human IgG1. Human recombinant soluble FGFR-2 (IIIb) is a disulfide-linked homodimeric protein. In the reduced form the glycosylated subunits of sFGFR-2 (IIIb)/human Fc chimera display a molecular mass of about 90 kDa. Fibroblast Growth Factors (FGFs) comprise a family of at least eighteen structurally related proteins that are involved in a multitude of physiological and pathological cellular processes, including cell growth, differentiation, angiogenesis, wound healing and tumorigenesis. The biological activities of the FGFs are mediated by a family of type I transmembrane tyrosine kinases which undergo dimerization and autophosphorylation after ligand binding. Four distinct genes encoding closely related FGF receptors, FGFR-1 to -4 are known. Multiple forms of FGFR-1 to -3 are generated by alternative splicing of the mRNAs. A frequent splicing event involving FGFR-1 and -2 results in receptors containing all three Ig domains, referred to as the alpha isoform, or only IgII and IgIII, referred to as the ß isoform. Only the alpha isoform has been identified for FGFR-3 and FGFR-4. Additional splicing events for FGFR-1 to -3, involving the C-terminal half of the IgIII domain encoded by two mutually exclusive alternative exons, generate FGF receptors with alternative IgIII domains (IIIb and IIIc). A IIIa isoform which is a secreted FGF binding protein containing only the N-terminal half of the IgIII domain plus some intron sequences has also been reported for FGFR-1. Mutations in FGFR-1 to -3 have been found in patients with birth defects involving craniosynostosis.
(1) The activity of sFGFR-2(IIIb)/Fc was determined by its ability to inhibit the FGF10-induced proliferation of 4MBr-5 cells. (2) Measured by its binding ability in a functional ELISA. Recombinant human soluble FGFR-2(IIIb)/Fc Chimera bind to immobilized recombinant human FGF-10 (Catalog #100-022).
The lyophilized sFGFR-2(IIIb)/Fc is soluble in water and most aqueous buffers and should be reconstituted to a concentration not lower than 50µg/ml.
