Store at -20°C, for extended storage, conserve at -20°C or -80°C.
Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Store working aliquots at 4°C for up to one week.
This protein 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. The function of this gene has not yet been determined. The expression pattern of the mouse homolog implies a role in nervous system development.
Probably involved in nervous system development and function.
Heparin-binding growth factors family
Brain and eye, and in a segmental pattern of the embryonic body wall. In adult olfactory bulb, hippocampus and most concentrated in Purkinje cell layer of the cerebellum.
