Formulation Lyophilized from a 0.2 µm filtered concentrated solution in PBS, pH 7.4.
Endotoxin Less than 1 EU/µg of rHuFGF-23 as determined by LAL method.
Reconstitution We recommend that this vial be briefly centrifuged prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Reconstitute in sterile distilled water or aqueous buffer containing 0.1 % BSA to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml. Stock solutions should be apportioned into working aliquots and stored at ≤ -20 °C. Further dilutions should be made in appropriate buffered solutions.
Stability & Storage Use a manual defrost freezer and avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
- 12 months from date of receipt, -20 to -70 °C as supplied.
- 1 month, 2 to 8 °C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.
- 3 months, -20 to -70 °C under sterile conditions after reconstitution.

BackgroundHuman FGF-23 belongs to the FGF-19 subfamily which has three members FGF-19, 21, 23. All FGF family members are heparin binding growth factors with a core 120 amino acid (a.a.) FGF domain that allows for a common tertiary structure. They are classically considered to be paracrine factors and are known for their roles in tissue patterning and organogenesis during embryogenesis. By contrast, the FGF-19 subfamily has recently been shown to function in an endocrine manner. Members of this subfamily have poor ability of binding to heparin binding site which is a crucial factor in ligand-receptor complex formation. β-Klotho has been identified as co-factor required for FGF-19, 21, 23 signaling. It can obviously increase ligand-receptor affinity. FGF-23 is most highly expressed in bone, from which it circulates through the blood to regulate vitamin D and phosphate metabolism in kidney.
