Recombinant Murine Fibroblast Growth Factor 9
GAF (Glia activating factor)
FGF9 is a member of the Fibroblast Growth Factor family of proteins. Proteins of this family play a central role during prenatal development and postnatal growth and regeneration of a variety of tissues, by promoting cellular proliferation and differentiation. FGF9 targets glial cells, astrocytes and other cells that express FGFR 1c, 2c, 3b, 3c and 4. FGF9 is a potent mitogen for both prostatic epithelial and stromal cells in culture and is an abundant, secreted growth factor that can act as both a paracrine mitogen for epithelial cells and as an autocrine mitogen for stromal cells. There is a 99% amino acid sequence homology between human, mouse and rat FGF9 proteins. In the FGF family, FGF9 is most closely associated with FGF16 and FGF20 (see additional information).
