Polyclonal Antibody against Human FGF-19

Application: ELISA

Size: 0.1 mg

Host: Rabbit


    Fibroblast growth factor 19 (FGF-19) is a member of a subfamily of FGFs that includes FGF-21 and FGF-23, each member functions as an important regulator of nutrient metabolism [1]. The primary source of endocrine FGF-19 is the ileum, bile acids release into the intestine after a meal to induce expression of FGF-19 [2]. Circulating FGF-19 plays an important role in maintaining proper bile acid homeostasis [3]. Several pharmacologic studies in hyperglycemic, obese animal models have shown that FGF-19 can improve metabolic rate and lower serum glucose and hepatic triglyceride and cholesterol levels [4,5]. Like insulin, FGF-19 functions as postprandial hormone to govern hepatic protein synthesis, glycogen synthesis and gluconeogenesis, but does not stimulate lipogenesis [6].


    Recombinant full-length human FGF-19 expressed in E.coli.


    The antibody detects circular human FGF-19.
