Fibroblast growth factor-basic (FGF-b, FGF-2) is a heparin-binding growth factor which stimulates the proliferation of a wide variety of cells including mesenchymal, neuroectodermal and endothelial cells. FGF-basic also exerts a potent angiogenic activity in vivo. FGF-basic has been isolated from neural, pituitary, adrenal cortex, and placental tissues. The JKFb-2 antibody reacts with human fibroblast growth factor - basic (FGF-basic).Product Details
- Antibody Type
- Host Species
- Recombinant human bFGF
- Phosphate-buffered solution, pH 7.2, containing 0.09% sodium azide.
- The antibody was purified by affinity chromatography, and conjugated with biotin under optimal conditions.
- 0.5 mg/ml
- Storage & Handling
- The antibody solution should be stored undiluted between 2°C and 8°C. Do not freeze.
- Recommended Usage
Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by ELISA assay. For use as an ELISA detection antibody, a concentration range of 1-4 µg/ml is recommended. To obtain a linear standard curve, serial dilutions of human FGF-basic protein ranging from 500 to 7.8 pg/ml are recommended for each ELISA plate.It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
- Application Notes
ELISA Detection: The biotinylated JKFb-2 antibody is useful as the detection antibody in a sandwich ELISA assay, when used in conjunction with the purified BHFB15 antibody (Cat. No. 514801/514802) as the capture antibody.
