Goitre was induced in adult rats by acute 1 or 2 weeks or chronic 4 or 10 weeks administration of methimazole together with a low iodine diet. Involution of thyroid growth was then observed at 16 weeks, 4 weeks after withdrawal of goitrogens and reversion to a normal diet. Thyroid growth rate subsequently slowed between 2 and 10 weeks. Messenger RNA for basic fibroblast growth factor basic FGF and for the high-affinity FGF receptor, was compared in the thyroids and livers of control and goitrous rats by ribonuclease protection assay.
Low levels of mRNA for basic FGF and its receptor were detectable in thyroids from control rats at all times, while none was detected in the livers from any animal. Basic FGF and receptor mRNAs increased, and were detected at greatest abundance in hyperplastic thyroids at 1 and 2 weeks respectively, during goitre formation, but subsequently declined in parallel with thyroid growth rate at 4 and 10 weeks.
Localization by immunohistochemistry demonstrated that basic FGF was present in the thyroids of control rats, and was largely associated with the basement membrane of follicles. During thyroid hyperplasia, increased basic FGF immunoreactivity appeared over the cytoplasm of follicular epithelial cells and was lost from the extracellular matrix.
High molecular weight FGF2: the biology of a nuclear growth factor
The fibroblast growth factors FGFs represent one of the relatively few families of extracellular signalling peptides that have been shown in recent decades to be key regulators of metazoan development. FGFs are required for multiple processes in both protostome and deuterostome groups. Given the wide range of regulatory roles attributed to the FGFs, it is perhaps not surprising that misregulation of this signalling pathway has been implicated in a number of human disease conditions.
The focus of the present review is to look at the fundamental components of the FGF pathway and illustrate how this highly conserved regulatory cassette has been deployed to regulate multiple, diverse processes during vertebrate development.
The fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family is one of the largest growth factor families, consisting of 18 intrinsic tissue regulatory polypeptides that share similarities.

The fibroblast growth factor FGF family is one of the largest growth factor families, consisting of 18 intrinsic tissue regulatory polypeptides that share similarities in structure and amino acid sequence. The FGFs are broadly expressed, regulating cell proliferation, differentiation, survival, and The FGFs are broadly expressed, regulating cell proliferation, differentiation, survival, and function. Binding of the FGF to the FGFR-HS complex changes its conformation, leading to receptor autophosphorylation, as well as phosphorylation of downstream signaling molecules, thus, conveying the signals to downstream effectors.
As an intrinsic cell signaling axis, the FGF and FGFR are expressed almost ubiquitously in all tissues and stages, functioning either in autocrine, paracrine, or endocrine mechanisms. These intrinsic FGF signaling axes play important roles in embryonic development, adult tissue regeneration, homeostasis and function. Redundant FGF and FGFR expression is common in multiple tissues and organs to warrant signaling conveyance, with a loss of FGF signaling having been reported as the culprit for developmental disorders and diseases.
FGF Signalling in Vertebrate Development
Fibroblast growth factor 2 FGF2 is one of the most studied growth factors to date. Most attention has been dedicated to the smallest, 18kDa FGF2 variant that is released by cells and acts through activation of cell-surface FGF-receptor tyrosine kinases. In this review, we summarize the current knowledge about the biology of HMW FGF2, its role in disease and areas for future investigation. FGF2 is a growth factor that exists in several isoforms differing in their N-terminal extensions, subcellular distribution and function.
Crystal structures of two FGF-FGFR complexes reveal the determinants of structural determinants governing specificity in fibroblast growth factor (FGF) signaling, we Deposited Date: ; Released Date: ; Deposition.
Consistent with their names, most FGFs initiate fibroblast proliferation. This has been demonstrated for FGFs 1 – 6, plus 8 and 9. For instance the original FGF molecule now known as FGF-2 or FGF basic also induces proliferation of endothelial cells, chondrocytes, smooth muscle cells, and melanocytes, etc. It induces adipocyte differentiation, stimulates astrocyte migration and prolongs neuron survival. To date, the FGF family includes nine members FGF-1 – 9 , all of which are characterized by an internal amino acid sequence that allows for growth factor binding to cell surface receptors.
Multiple receptor isoforms can be generated from these genes by alternative splicing and cross-reactivities have been demonstrated for multiple family members. This accounts for the identical effects generated by many FGF molecules on common cell types.

Fibroblast growth factors FGFs mediate many cell-cell signaling events during early development. Comparison of our results with previously reported FGFR expression patterns reveals that FGFR-1 expression is highly conserved among vertebrate embryos, and FGFR-2 expression shows many features that are conserved and some that are divergent. In contrast, the expression pattern of FGFR-4 is highly divergent among vertebrate embryos. This is a preview of subscription content, log in to check access.

FGF-8 belongs to the fibroblast growth factor FGF family and plays an important role in cell growth, embryogenesis, and tumorigenesis. The isoforms may have different functions during embryogenesis. During prenatal stages, FGF-8 is required for the normal development of various organs, including limbs and central nervous system. FGF-8 was first cloned from SC-3 mouse mammary carcinoma cells and was found to be induced in response to androgenic stimuli. FGF-8 is found to have a transforming capacity and is detected in human prostate and breast carcinoma specimens and cell lines.

SUMMARY: This workshop is being held in recognition of the growing body of work on the use of fragile geologic features FGFs to evaluate probabilistic seismic hazard PSH models, and the emergence of different methods of application and evaluation. We will bring together scientists possessing experience in studies of FGFs, and scientists not currently involved in FGF work but possessing relevant expertise.
The following examples come to mind: geology and surficial processes that lead to the formation and identification of FGFs; alternative methods for fragility and age estimation; statistical methods of PSH model evaluation; and experience with the setting of guidelines criteria.
Background: Meningioma and glioma are common central nervous system tumors. Hypoxic tumor cells secrete angiogenic cytokines, such as vascular.
