FGF-1 (acidic FGF) is a member of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family, which binds heparin. 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 (ref.).
- Use as a supplement in serum-free or reduced serum media for culture of mammalian cells
- Studies of the human FGF-1 receptor, transmembrane signaling and protein phosphorylation
- Western blotting control for anti-EGF-1 antibodies
- Widely used in cosmetics, such as whitening, anti-wrinkle, anti-aging, etc.
