Human FGF21 protein, His Tag

Product Information

  • Product name

    Human FGF21 protein, His Tag

  • Sequence

    Amino acid sequence derived from mature form of human FGF21 (NP_061986.1) (His 29-Ser 209) was expressed, with a polyhistide tag at the N-terminus.

  • Activity

    Measured in a cell proliferation assay using NIH-3T3 mouse embryonic fibroblast cells. The ED50 for this effect is typically 0.1­1 µg/mL in the presence of 2.5 µg/mL of rmKlotho β.

Additional Information

  • Background

    Fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21) 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. FGF-21 has a hydrophobic amino terminus, which is a typical signal sequence, and appears to be a secreted protein. The metabolic regulator fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21) has antidiabetic properties in animal models of diabetes and obesity. FGF21 is a novel adipokine associated with obesity-related metabolic complications in humans. The paradoxical increase of serum FGF21 in obese individuals, which may be explained by a compensatory response or resistance to FGF21, warrants further investigation. FGF-21, which we have identified as a novel metabolic factor, exhibits the therapeutic characteristics necessary for an effective treatment of diabetes.
