Stability and Reconstitution

Stability and Storage Lyophilized proteins are stable for 1 year from the date of receipt if stored between (-20°C) and (-80°C). Upon reconstitution we recommend that the solution can be stored at (4°C) for short term or at (-20°C) to (-80°C) for long term. Repeated freeze thaw cycles should be avoided with reconstituted products.
Reconstitution Briefly centrifuge the vial before opening. It is recommended to reconstitute the protein in sterile water containing 0.1% endotoxin-free recombinant human serum albumin (HSA).


Fibroblast growth factor 8 (FGF8), also known as AIGF and HBGF-8, belongs to the 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 (PMID: 11276432; 15863033). FGF8 stimulates growth in an autocrine manner in normal individuals but mediates hormonal action during tumorigenesis (PMID 17512240). Defects in FGF8 cause Kallmann syndrome type 6 (KAL6) and idiopathic hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (IHH) (PMID 18596921).
