Overview

Fibroblast growth factor 4 (FGF-4) is a member of the FGF superfamily (Beenken & Mohammadi). FGF-4 is expressed in pluripotent stem cells and is implicated in various stages of development and morphogenesis in a variety of organisms (Kosaka et al. 2009). FGF-4 has been shown to have an ability to promote neural stem cell proliferation and neuronal differentiation in the postnatal brain (Kosaka et al. 2006). FGF-4 has also been shown to increase the proliferation rate of mesenchymal stem cells (Farré et al.). FGF-4 supports the maintenance and self-renewal properties of human embryonic stem cells and also promotes the proliferation of these cells (Mayshar et al.). In the mouse, the Fgf4 gene also supports proliferation of the inner cell mass (ICM) and postimplantation embryos (Feldman et al.).

Data

(A) The biological activity of Human Recombinant FGF-4 was tested by its ability to promote the proliferation of BALB/c 3T3 cells. Cell proliferation was measured using a fluorometric assay method. The EC50 is defined as the effective concentration of the growth factor at which cell proliferation is at 50% of maximum. The EC50 in the example above is less than 0.5 ng/mL. (B) 2 μg of Human Recombinant FGF-4 was resolved with SDS-PAGE under reducing (+) and non-reducing (-) conditions and visualized by Coomassie Blue staining. Human Recombinant FGF-4 has a predicted molecular mass of 19.4 kDa.
