The cell growth factor is a naturally occurring substance, also means a group of proteins that stimulate the growth of cells, they are important for regulating a variety of cellular processes. It can not only stimulate cell proliferation, wound healing, and occasionally cellular differentiation, but also typically act as signaling molecules between cells, the examples are cytokines and hormones that bind to specific receptors on the surface of their target cells.
Our company provides three categories cell growth factor, Recombinant Human Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF), Recombinant Human Basic Fibroblast Growth Factor (bFGF), and Recombinant Human Insulin-like Growth Factor (IGF-1), which are produced by yeast fermentation with high-purity, high-activity, and no animal origin.
Recombinant EGF is a biologically active protein factor in cell culture, a type of polypeptide substance widely present in mammals, which exerts a physiological action by binding to the EGF receptor on the cell membrane. Epidermal growth factor protein is widely used in cell culture of fibroblasts, keratinocytes, epithelial cells and endothelial cells.
Recombinant human basic fibroblast growth factor, also known as basic FGF, bFGF, FGF2, FGF-β or heparin-binding growth factor, is a biologically active protein suitable for cell culture applications. It can be used for angiogenesis, fibroblast mitosis, atonal growth of PC-12 cells, receptor binding, and tyrosine phosphorylation studies.
Insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), also known as growth factor C (Somatamedin C), belongs to the insulin-like growth factor family and is structurally homologous to pro insulin. IGF-1 insulin growth factor, including high insulin like growth factor and insulin like growth factor low, can be used for dispensing serum-free medium and cell culture.

Cell Growth Factor FAQs
What Are Cell Growth Factors?
Growth factor means a group of proteins that stimulate the growth of the cell, usually it functions as hormone-like regulatory signals, controlling the growth and differentiation of responsive cells.
What Is The Role Of Growth Factors In Cell Division?
Growth factors bind to receptors on the cell surface, with the result of activating cellular proliferation and/or differentiation.
How Do Growth Factors Influence The Cell Cycle?
Growth factors regulate the cell cycle by initiating various signaling pathways. These signalling pathways are mediated by the binding of growth factors into their corresponding epidermal growth factor receptor, and include the Ras/Erk pathway and PI3K/Akt pathway.
