FGF2 (basic fibroblast growth factor or bFGF) has been instrumental in the maintenance and differentiation of cells, particularly in serum-free workflows. Defined Bioscience’s FGF2 (tuna) growth factor possesses the full native sequence for FGF2 derived from T. albacares, the yellowfin tuna, produced as an animal-free, carrier-free, and highly pure growth factor. Previous research has shown the value of cross-species homologs in cell culture applications, offering opportunities to use this growth factor in improving workflows across human and non-human cell line culture.
