ACTIVITY TEST of the Active Fibroblast Growth Factor 2, Basic (FGF2)

Figure. The binding activity of FGF2 with CASP1.
Basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF2), also known as bFGF, FGF-β is a member of a large family of structurally related heparin-binding proteins (the FGFs) involved in the regulation of cell proliferation, growth and differentiation. It involved in many biological processes including angiogenesis, embryonic development and wound healing. Additionally, FGF2 is a critical component of human embryonic stem cell culture medium. Besides, Caspase 1 (CASP1) has been identified as an interactor of FGF2, thus a binding ELISA assay was conducted to detect the interaction of recombinant bovine FGF2 and recombinant bovine CASP1. Briefly, FGF2 were diluted serially in PBS, with 0.01% BSA (pH 7.4). Duplicate samples of 100uL were then transferred to CASP1-coated microtiter wells and incubated for 2h at 37℃. Wells were washed with PBST and incubated for 1h with anti-FGF2 pAb, then aspirated and washed 3 times. After incubation with HRP labelled secondary antibody, wells were aspirated and washed 3 times. With the addition of substrate solution, wells were incubated 15-25 minutes at 37℃. Finally, add 50µL stop solution to the wells and read at 450nm immediately. The binding activity of FGF2 and CASP1 was shown in Figure 1, and this effect was in a dose dependent manner.

USAGE of the Active Fibroblast Growth Factor 2, Basic (FGF2)

Reconstitute in 20mM Tris, 150mM NaCl (pH8.0) to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. Do not vortex.

STORAGE of the Active Fibroblast Growth Factor 2, Basic (FGF2)

Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles. Store at 2-8°C for one month. Aliquot and store at -80°C for 12 months.

STABILITY of the Active Fibroblast Growth Factor 2, Basic (FGF2)

The thermal stability is described by the loss rate. The loss rate was determined by accelerated thermal degradation test, that is, incubate the protein at 37°C for 48h, and no obvious degradation and precipitation were observed. The loss rate is less than 5% within the expiration date under appropriate storage condition.
