Fibroblast growth factor 8a (FGF-8a) is a member of the FGF family and plays a key role in the regulation of embryogenesis, cellular proliferation, differentiation, and migration. FGF8a is often used for the differentiation of induced pluripotent stem cells, embryonic stem cells, and neural stem cells.

FGF8a is a spliced form of FGF8, a heparin-binding protein that targets mammary and non-mammary cells expressing the FGF receptors. A 21.3kDa highly pure, bioactive recombinant protein produced in an animal-free expression system. This protein is carrier-free, tag-free, and non-glycosylated to ensure a pure homogenous protein with exceptional lot-to-lot consistency. Qk059 is suitable for enhanced reproducibility and physiologically relevant cultures.
