|Synonyms||Fibroblast Growth Factor-10, FGFA, Keratinocyte growth factor-2|
|Description||Fibroblast Growth Factor-10 (FGF-10) is a mitogen mainly produced by mesenchymal stem cells in lung. FGF-10 belongs to the heparin binding FGF family, and is also known as Keratinocyte Growth Factor-2 (KGF-2). It shares homology with KGF, and both KGF and FGF-10 activate the receptor FGFR2-IIIb. However, unlike KGF, which induces the proliferation and differentiation of various epithelial cells, FGF-10 is an essential factor for the budding and branching morphogenesis during multi-organ development via mesenchymal-epithelial interactions. FGF-10 is crucial for lung and limb development and is regulated by Shh during early development.
Recombinant mouse Fibroblast Growth Factor-10 (rmFGF-10) produced in E. coli is a single non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 148 amino acids. A fully biologically active molecule, rmFGF-10 has a molecular mass of 17.0 kDa analyzed by reducing SDS-PAGE and is obtained by proprietary chromatographic techniques at GenScript.
