Overview

Fibroblast growth factor (FGF) 9 is a pleiotropic member of the FGF family. FGFs are heparin-dependent regulators of cell proliferation and differentiation (Itoh & Ornitz). FGF-9 signals by binding FGFR3 (IIIb) and the IIIc splice variants of the FGFR1, FGFR2, and FGFR3 receptors (Santos-Ocampo et al.; Mohammadi et al.; Plotnikov et al.). In mice, deletion of FGF-9 is lethal and expression of FGF-9 affects development of the skeleton, cerebellum, lungs, heart, vascular system, digestive tract, and testes (Colvin et al.; Harada et al.; Lin et al.). Altered levels of FGF-9 have also been reported in various types of human cancers (Leushacke et al.; Abdel-Rahman et al.).

Data and Publications

Data

(A) The biological activity of Human Recombinant FGF-9 was tested by its ability to promote the proliferation of 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 2 ng/mL. (B) 2 μg of Human Recombinant FGF-9 was resolved with SDS-PAGE under reducing (+) and non-reducing (-) conditions and visualized by Coomassie Blue staining. Human Recombinant FGF-9 has a predicted molecular mass of 23.4 kDa.
