E. coli-derived recombinant human FGF-6 Gly41-Ile208 Accession # P10767
Detects human FGF-6 in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In Western blots, approximately 50% cross-reactivity with recombinant human (rh) FGF-4 is observed, less than 5% cross-reactivity with rhFGF-9 is observed, and less than 2% cross-reactivity with FGF-acidic, rhFGF-5, and rhFGF-7 is observed. In direct ELISAs, less than 1% cross-reactivity with rh beta -ECGF, recombinant mouse (rm) FGF-8b, and rmFGF-8c is observed.

Fibroblast Growth Factor-6 (FGF-6), also known as HST-2, is a 25-28 kDa member of the FGF family of heparin binding polypeptides which are potent regulators of cell proliferation, differentiation, and function. FGF proteins contain a 120 amino acid (aa) core FGF domain that exhibits a beta -trefoil structure (1, 2). Mature human FGF-6 is a 171 aa protein that shares 94% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat FGF-6 (3). It binds and signals primarily through FGF R1c, 2c, and 4 (4). FGF-6 functions as a mitogen for fibroblasts, vascular endothelial cells, and prostate carcinoma cells, and N-linked glycosylation is required for the full mitogenic effect (5‑7). FGF-6 expression is restricted to skeletal muscle during development although it can be upregulated in prostate cancer and Kaposi sarcoma (7-9). In the adult, FGF-6 is upregulated in injured skeletal muscle and is required for muscle regeneration (10). FGF-6 inhibits the terminal differentiation of myoblasts and also cooperates with TGF-beta 2 to promote chondrogenesis in embryonic somites (8, 11).
