ACTIVITY TEST

Figure. The binding activity of FGF2 with CASP1.
Basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF2), also known as bFGF, FGF-β is a member of a large family of structurally related heparin-binding proteins (the FGFs) involved in the regulation of cell proliferation, growth and differentiation. It involved in many biological processes including angiogenesis, embryonic development and wound healing. Additionally, FGF2 is a critical component of human embryonic stem cell culture medium. Besides, Caspase 1 (CASP1) has been identified as an interactor of FGF2, thus a binding ELISA assay was conducted to detect the interaction of recombinant bovine FGF2 and recombinant bovine CASP1. Briefly, FGF2 were diluted serially in PBS, with 0.01% BSA (pH 7.4). Duplicate samples of 100uL were then transferred to CASP1-coated microtiter wells and incubated for 2h at 37℃. Wells were washed with PBST and incubated for 1h with anti-FGF2 pAb, then aspirated and washed 3 times. After incubation with HRP labelled secondary antibody, wells were aspirated and washed 3 times. With the addition of substrate solution, wells were incubated 15-25 minutes at 37℃. Finally, add 50µL stop solution to the wells and read at 450nm immediately. The binding activity of FGF2 and CASP1 was shown in Figure 1, and this effect was in a dose dependent manner.

USAGE

Reconstitute in 20mM Tris, 150mM NaCl (pH8.0) to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. Do not vortex.

STORAGE

Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles. Store at 2-8°C for one month. Aliquot and store at -80°C for 12 months.

STABILITY

The thermal stability is described by the loss rate. The loss rate was determined by accelerated thermal degradation test, that is, incubate the protein at 37°C for 48h, and no obvious degradation and precipitation were observed. The loss rate is less than 5% within the expiration date under appropriate storage condition.
