Recombinant Mouse Fibroblast Growth Factor-21 (mFGF-21) without Tag
None (his-tag removed)
FGF21 is a metabolic hormone mainly produced in liver. It regulates glucose and lipid metabolism through pleiotropic actions in multiple tissues, and protects against metabolic damages under various stresses.
In humans, high circulating FGF21 levels are found in obesity and multiple cardiometabolic disorders, including metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and coronary artery disease. Serum FGF21 is a potential biomarker for the early detection and risk prediction of these diseases.
Total 184 AA Mw: 20kDa (calculated). N-terminal His-tag removed,2 extra AA left (highlighted).
