Lyophilized Standard Mix-Human Group 10, Panel A, 9-Plex. PN: HG1009A. One vial containing lyophilized recombinant BTC, CNTF, FGF-4, Follistatin, IL-19, KGF, PDGF-AA, PDGF-BB, and PIGF-1.  Note: If multiple analyte kits on the above target list are ordered as a panel, only one vial of standard mix is supplied for those analyte kits.

STORAGE:  2-8 C in the dark.

IMPORTANT: Sodium azide forms explosive compounds with heavy metals. These products contain <0.05% (w/w) azide which with repeated contact with lead and copper commonly found in plumbing drains may result in the buildup of shock sensitive compounds. Dispose in accordance with regulations from your institute.

The Keratinocyte Growth Factor (KGF), also known as FGF7, is a growth factor present in the epithelialization-phase of wound healing. In this phase, keratinocytes are covering the wound, forming the epithelium. KGF is a small signaling molecule that binds to fibroblast growth factor receptor 2b (FGFR2b). For signaling to occur, a dimer is required between two FGF: FGFR complexes that is linked together by a molecule of heparin. There are 23 known FGFs, and 4 FGF receptors. FGF: FGFR binding is complex and regulated by a variety of mechanisms in a tissue specific manner.
