Description

FGF basic is a member of the FGF family, currently comprised of seven related mitogenic proteins which show 35 - 55% amino acid conservation. FGF basic has been isolated from a number of sources, including neural tissue, pituitary, adrenal cortex, corpus luteum and placenta. This factor contains four cysteine residues but reduced FGF basic retains full biological activity, indicating that disulfide bonds are not required for this activity. Several reports indicate that a variety of forms of FGF basic are produced as a result of N-terminal extensions. These extensions apparently affect localization of FGF basic in cellular compartments but do not affect biological activity. Studies indicate that binding of FGF to heparin or cell surface heparan sulfate proteoglycans is necessary for binding of FGF to high affinity FGF receptors. FGF acidic and basic appear to bind to the same high affinity receptors and show a similar range of biological activities. FGF basic stimulates the proliferation of all cells of mesodermal origin, and many cells of neuroectodermal, ectodermal and endodermal origin. FGF basic is chemotactic and mitogenic for endothelial cells in vitro. FGF basic induces neuron differentiation, survival and regeneration. FGF basic has also been shown to be crucial in modulating embryonic development and differentiation. These observed in vitro functions of FGF basic suggest FGF basic may play a role in vivo in the modulation of such normal processes as angiogenesis, wound healing and tissue repair, embryonic development and differentiation, and neuronal function and neural degeneration.
