Rat FGF-BP Antibody Summary

Species Reactivity
Detects rat FGF-BP in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs and Western blots, approximately 10% cross-reactivity with recombinant human FGF-BP is observed.
Polyclonal Goat IgG
Antigen Affinity-purified
Mouse myeloma cell line NS0-derived recombinant rat FGF-BP
Accession # Q9QY10
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose. *Small pack size (SP) is supplied either lyophilized or as a 0.2 µm filtered solution in PBS.
Endotoxin Level
<0.10 EU per 1 μg of the antibody by the LAL method.


Recommended Concentration
Western Blot
0.1 µg/mL
Recombinant Rat FGF-BP (Catalog # 1413-FB)
5-15 µg/mL
See below
Blockade of Receptor-ligand Interaction
In a functional ELISA, 0.5-2 µg/mL of this antibody will block 50% of the binding of 50 ng/mL of Recombinant Rat FGF-BP (Catalog # 1413-FB) to immobilized Recombinant Human FGF-basic (Catalog # 233-FB) coated at 5 µg/mL (100 µL/well). At 10 μg/mL, this antibody will block >90% of the binding.

Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.

FGF-BP in Rat Thymus. FGF-BP was detected in perfusion fixed frozen sections of rat thymus using Rat FGF-BP Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1413) at 5 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific labeling was localized to the cytoplasm of lymphocytes. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Frozen Tissue Sections.

Background: FGF-BP

Fibroblast growth factor binding protein (FGF-BP), also known as HBp17, is a secreted glycoprotein that increases the bioavailability of FGFs (1). Mature FGF-BP is a 34 kDa O-glycosylated protein with five conserved intrachain disulfide bonds (2-4). FGF-BP contains a heparin-binding domain (aa 113-146) and a distinct FGF-binding region (aa 197-238) (5). Mature rat FGF-BP shares 54% and 81% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat FGF-BP, respectively. FGF-BP is expressed throughout development and in adult squamous epithelium (6, 7). It is upregulated in injured skin, renal tubular epithelium, and spinal nerves as well as in carcinomas of the skin, colon, and pancreas (3, 8-11). FGF-BP binds FGF -1, -2, -7, -10, and -22 which are secreted and sequestered in the extracellular matrix (ECM) (8, 12). The interactions of FGF-BP with heparin sulfate proteoglycans (HSPG) and FGF, modulates their activities (7, 9 13, 14). FGF-BP enhances the mitogenic effects of FGFs, thereby contributing to epithelial, endothelial, and neuronal tissue repair, angiogenesis, and tumor growth (8-10, 12, 15, 16).
