Fibroblast growth factor 17, also known as FGF17 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. FGF-17 is most similar to FGF-8 and is highly conserved between mouse and human (93 % identity).1,2 FGF17 is required for several complex social behaviors and studies suggest that disturbances in FGF17 signaling may contribute to neuropsychiatric diseases that affect such behaviors.3

Protein Details

>95% by SDS-PAGE and analyzed by silver stain.
Endotoxin Level
<0.1 EU/µg as determined by the LAL method
Biological Activity
The biological activity of Human FGF-17 was determined by its ability to stimulate 3H-thymidine incorporation by NR6R-3T3 fibroblast. The expected ED50 for this effect is typically 15 - 60 ng/ml, in the presence of 1 μg/ml heparin.

Predicted Molecular Mass
The predicted molecular weight of Recombinant Human FGF-17 is Mr 22.6 kDa. However, the actual molecular weight as observed by migration on SDS-PAGE is 21.5 and 22.6 kDa (reducing conditions).
This recombinant protein was 0.2 µm filtered and lyophilized from modified Dulbecco’s phosphate buffered saline (1X PBS) pH 7.2 – 7.3 with no calcium, magnesium, or preservatives.
Storage and Stability
This lyophilized protein is stable for six to twelve months when stored desiccated at -20°C to -70°C. After aseptic reconstitution, this protein may be stored at 2°C to 8°C for one month or at -20°C to -70°C in a manual defrost freezer. Avoid Repeated Freeze Thaw Cycles. See Product Insert for exact lot specific storage instructions.
