|Cell Proliferation Induced by FGF‑17 and Neutralization by Human FGF‑17 Antibody. Recombinant Human FGF‑17 (Catalog # 319-FG) stimulates proliferation in the the NR6R‑3T3 mouse fibroblast cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). Proliferation elicited by Recombinant Human FGF‑17 (100 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Goat Anti-Human FGF‑17 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF319). The ND50 is typically 6-24 µg/mL in the presence of heparin (1 µg/mL).|
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.
