INTRODUCING QKINE FGF2-G3

FGF2-G3 is a highly bioactive and thermostable (heat stable) engineered form of FGF-2, used to support homogeneous and reproducible stem cell culture while preventing the need for frequent media changes. Wild-type FGF-2 is inherently unstable and prone to proteolytic degradation and aggregation, leading to a short half-life in culture media (<10h), frequent media changes, and variations in culture.

FGF2-G3 has been engineered with nine amino acid substitutions to enhance stability without impacting bioactivity. This increases the functional half-life of the protein from <10h (wild-type) to >7 days (FGF2-G3) in culture media. The use of thermostable FGF2-G3 offers an improved alternative solution that saves researchers valuable time and money by reducing media changes.
