Growth Factors and Cytokines
Stemgent™ by REPROCELL®
Bimodal in action, mature recombinant Activin A has been shown to maintain pluripotency of stem cells and promote differentiation. Crystallography grade (highest purity).
BMP-4 is involved in tooth and limb development and fracture repair, and is a critical signaling molecule required for the early differentiation of the embryo and establishment of a dorsal-ventral axis.
Fibroblast Growth Factor-basic (a.k.a. FGF-basic, FGF-2 or bFGF) plays a central role during development and growth or regeneration of a variety of tissues by promoting cell differentiation and proliferation.
03-0019 / 03-0019-250
HGF is a paracrine growth, motility and morphogenic factor secreted by mesenchymal stem cells and acts primarily on epithelial and endothelial cells, but also haemopoietic progenitors and T-cells. Plays a key role in myogenesis and wound healing.
03-0016 / 03-0016-100
Human LIF is a lymphoid factor that promotes long-term maintenance of the pluripotency of PSCs by suppressing spontaneous differentiation.
03-0011 / 03-0011-100
Mouse LIF is a lymphoid factor that promotes long-term maintenance of the pluripotency of mouse PSCs by suppressing spontaneous differentiation.
StemFit™ by Ajinomoto®
AS-A10 / AS-A50
Activin A is bi-modal in action having been shown to maintain pluripotency of stem cells and promote differentiation.
bFGF is mainly used for stem cell cultivation in order to expand pluripotent stem cells or mesenchymal stem cells.
