Fibroblast growth factor (FGF)-1 plays important roles during myocardial and coronary morphogenesis. FGF-1 is also involved in the physiological response of the adult heart against ischemia, which includes cardiomyocyte protection and vascular growth. In the present study, we have generated transgenic mice with specific myocardial overexpression of the(More)
CD44v6, a member of the CD44 family of transmembrane glycoproteins is a co-receptor for two receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs), Met and VEGFR-2 (vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2). CD44v6 is not only required for the activation of these RTKs but also for signalling. In order to understand the role of CD44v6 in Met and VEGFR-2 activation and(More)
