FGF-8e, Human

Synonyms Fibroblast Growth Factor-8, FGF-8e, AIGF, HBGF-8
Description Fibroblast Growth Factor 8e (FGF-8e) is a cytokine belonging to the heparin-binding FGF family, which has at least 23 members. FGF-8 has 8 different isoforms, named FGF-8a through FGF-8h. Different FGF-8 isoforms have different receptor affinities, and thus participate in different signaling cascade pathways. FGF-8 has widespread expression during embryonic development, promoting gastrulation, somitogenesis, morphogenesis, and limb formation. FGF-8 also has oncogenic potential. While in normal cells FGF-8 is expressed at very low levels, in breast, prostate and ovarian cancer FGF-8 is highly expressed.FGF-8 promotes tumor angiogenesis by increasing neovascularization, and inducing osteoblastic differentiation.
Recombinant Human FGF-8e produced in E. coli is a single non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 212 amino acids. A fully biologically active molecule, rhFGF-8e has a molecular mass of 24.3 kDa analyzed by reducing SDS-PAGE and is obtained by chromatographic techniques at GenScript.
