|FGF‑17 in Human Kidney. FGF‑17 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human kidney using Human FGF‑17 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB319) at 8 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific labeling was localized to the basement membrane supporting epithelial cells. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.|
Fibroblast growth factors (FGFs) play multiple biological functions including angiogenesis, mitogenesis, cellular differentiation and wound repairing. All members of the FGF family have a conserved approximately 120 amino acid core with 30‑70% identity. Among FGF family members, FGF-17 is most similar to FGF-8 (60% sequence identity) and FGF-18 (50% sequence identity). The mRNA of FGF-17 was found in midgestation of embryo and multiple adult tissues, and is preferentially expressed in specific sites, such as embryonic brain, developing skeleton and arteries. Human FGF‑17 shares 98.6% amino acid (aa) sequence identity with mouse FGF‑17. Rat FGF‑17 shares 100% aa sequence identity with mouse FGF‑17.
