Fibroblast Growth Factors (Fibroblast Growth Factor) Summary

Description: A family of small polypeptide growth factors that share several common features including a strong affinity for HEPARIN, and a central barrel-shaped core region of 140 amino acids that is highly homologous between family members. Although originally studied as proteins that stimulate the growth of fibroblasts this distinction is no longer a requirement for membership in the fibroblast growth factor family.

Also Known As: Fibroblast Growth Factor; DNA Synthesis Factor; Fibroblast Growth Regulatory Factor; Growth Factor, Fibroblast; Growth Factors, Fibroblast
