General description

Recombinant, mouse keratinocyte growth factor (KGF) consisting of amino acids 32-194 and expressed in E. coli. KGF plays an essential role in development, tumorigenesis, angiogenesis, morphogenesis, and wound healing. Mature mouse KGF amino acid sequence is 96% identical with rat, bovine, ovine, equine, and human forms and is active across species.
