25x Biotin-detection Ab (Mouse FGF-1 Biotin-dAb). PN: B211237B. One vial containing 100 µL of biotinylated anti-mouse FGF-1.

Lyophilized Standard Mix - Mouse Group 4 Panel A, 7-Plex. PN: MG4007A. One vial containing lyophilized recombinant FGF-1, FGF-2, FGF-9, HGF, IL-11, IL-20, and IL-33.  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.

APPLICATION: Optimal antibody pair and antigen standard for assaying human Mouse FGF-1/FGF-acidic/HBGF-1. Can be multiplexed with other analytes in Mouse Group 4.  To be used in conjunction with the AimPlex Mouse/Rat Basic Kit (PN: P200201) and a diluent kit. Refer to the AimPlex Multiplex Immunoassay User Manual and kit inserts for the assay procedure.

Description:

Fibroblast Growth Factor 1 (FGF-1) or Heparin-binding growth factor 1 (HBGF-1) is a protein that is a member of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family. FGF family members possess broad mitogenic and cell survival activities, and are involved in a variety of biological processes, including embryonic development, cell growth, morphogenesis, tissue repair, tumor growth and invasion. This protein functions as a modifier of endothelial cell migration and proliferation, as well as an angiogenic factor. It acts as a mitogen for a variety of mesoderm- and neuroectoderm-derived cells in vitro, thus is thought to be involved in organogenesis. Diseases associated with FGF1 include breast fibroadenoma and ischemia.
