FGF13 (Fibroblast growth factor 13) is a member of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family. FGF family members possess broad mitogenic and cell survival activities, and are involved in a variety of biological processes, including embryonic development, cell growth, morphogenesis, tissue repair, tumor growth, and invasion. A proliferation assay was conducted to detect the bioactivity of recombinant rat FGF13 using 3T3 cells. Briefly, 3T3 cells were seeded into triplicate wells of 96-well plates at a density of 2000 cells/well and allowed to attach overnight, then the medium was replaced with serum-free standard DMEM prior to the addition of various concentrations of FGF13. After incubated for 48h, cells were observed by inverted microscope and cell proliferation was measured by Cell Counting Kit-8 (CCK-8). Briefly, 10 μl of CCK-8 solution was added to each well of the plate, then the absorbance at 450nm was measured using a microplate reader after incubating the plate for 1-4 hours at 37ºC. Proliferation of 3T3 cells after incubation with FGF13 for 48h observed by inverted microscope. Cell viability was assessed by CCK-8 (Cell Counting Kit-8 ) assay after incubation with recombinant FGF13 for 48h. And FGF13 significantly increased cell viability of 3T3 cells.
