Recombinant Mouse FGFR4 Fc Chimera Protein, CF
Recombinant Mouse FGFR4 Fc Chimera Protein, CF Summary
|Mouse FGF R4
Accession # Q03142
CF stands for Carrier Free (CF). We typically add Bovine Serum Albumin (BSA) as a carrier protein to our recombinant proteins. Adding a carrier protein enhances protein stability, increases shelf-life, and allows the recombinant protein to be stored at a more dilute concentration. The carrier free version does not contain BSA.
In general, we advise purchasing the recombinant protein with BSA for use in cell or tissue culture, or as an ELISA standard. In contrast, the carrier free protein is recommended for applications, in which the presence of BSA could interfere.

Fibroblast growth factor receptor 4 (FGF R4), also known as CD334, is a 110 kDa glycosylated transmembrane receptor tyrosine kinase (1). Mature mouse FGF R4 consists of a 350 amino acid (aa) extracellular domain (ECD) with three Ig-like domains, a 21 aa transmembrane segment, and a 412 aa cytoplasmic domain that contains the tyrosine kinase domain (2). Within the ECD, mouse FGF R4 shares 90% and 96% aa sequence identity with human and rat FGF R4, respectively. Alternate splicing generates additional isoforms that have deletions within or C-terminal to the kinase domain (3, 4). FGF R4 is widely expressed during embryonic development and in adult liver, kidney, and lung (2, 5, 6, 7). It binds FGF acidic, FGF basic, FGF-8, -15, and -19 (6, 8‑12). FGF R4 associates with beta-Klotho and sulfated glycosaminoglycans, and these interactions increase the affinity of FGF R4 for its ligands as well as its signaling capacity (7, 9, 12). FGF-19 induced signaling through FGF R4 is important for the regulation of bile acid synthesis and lipid and glucose homeostasis (10, 13). FGF R4 supports glucose tolerance and insulin sensitivity and protects against hyperlipidemia (13). It is down‑regulated in the liver during fasting and is up‑regulated by insulin (10). It can exert either proliferative or apoptotic effects on hepatocytes (7, 11). FGF R4 signaling is additionally required for skeletal muscle development in limbs (4, 6). FGF R4 interacts in cis with cell surface MMP-14, leading to down‑regulation of both proteins (14). In contrast, the Arg388 variant of FGF R4, which is associated with tumor progression in human cancer, is activated and stabilized by MMP-14 (14, 15).
