Fibroblast growth factor 10, also known as FGF10, is a member of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family. FGF family members possess broad mitogenic and cell survival activities, and are involved in a variety of biological processes, including embryonic development, cell growth, morphogenesis, tissue repair, tumor growth and invasion. This protein exhibits mitogenic activity for keratinizing epidermal cells, but essentially no activity for fibroblasts, which is similar to the biological activity of FGF7. FGF10 is a primary factor in the process of wound healing similarly to other growth factors such as TGF alpha and FGF7.1

<0.1 EU/µg as determined by the LAL method
The biological activity of Human FGF-10 was determined by its ability to stimulate the proliferation of a monkey epithelial cell line, 4MBr-5 (Rubin, J.S. et al., 1989, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 86:802). The expected ED50 for this effect is typically 100 - 300 ng/ml.
