Recombinant Rat Fibroblast Growth Factor 10
Keratinocyte Growth Factor 2
FGF10/KGF2 is a member of the Fibroblast Growth Factor family of proteins. KGF2 cDNA encodes a 208 amino acid residue protein with a hydrophobic amino-terminal signal peptide. Human KGF2 shares 92% and 95% amino acid sequence identity with mouse and rat KGF2, respectively. In the FGF family, KGF2 is most closely related to FGF7 (KGF1), FGF3 and FGF22 (see additional information). The expression of KGF2 transcript has been shown to be most abundant in the embryo and adult lung. Recombinant KGF2 has been shown to be mitogenic for epithelial and epidermal cells but not fibroblasts. KGF2 may play unique roles in brain and lung development, wound healing and limb bud formation.
