Alternate Names: Heparin secretory-transforming protein 2, HST-2, HSTF-2, Heparin-binding growth factor 6, HBGF-6 Accession Number: P10767
Description: Fibroblast growth factor 6 (FGF-6) is a heparin-binding growth factor that is expressed in epithelial and mesenchymal lineages. FGF-6 binds and signals through the FGF receptors FGFR1, FGFR2, and FGFR4. FGF-6 functions as a mitogen for vascular endothelial cells and fibroblasts. FGF-6 is also an important factor driving muscle differentiation and regeneration.

Preparation and Storage
Country of Origin: USA Shipping: Room temperature
Storage Prior to Reconstitution: -20°C
Product Reconstitution: Sterile water at 0.1 mg/mL
Instructions: Centrifuge vial before opening. Suspend the product by gently pipetting the above recommended solution down the sides of the vial. DO NOT VORTEX. Allow several minutes for complete reconstitution. If a precipitate is observed, centrifuge the solution thoroughly and use only the soluble fraction (removing it from the precipitate). A 10% overfill has been added to compensate for any loss of protein in the precipitate. For prolonged storage, dilute to working aliquots in a 0.1% BSA solution, store at -80°C and avoid repeat freeze thaws.
12 months from date of receipt when stored at -20°C to -80°C as supplied.
1 month when stored at 4°C after reconstituting as directed.
3 months when stored at -20°C to -80°C after reconstituting as directed.
