Adenovirus-mediated expression of dominant negative fibroblast growth factor (FGF) receptor 1 in thyroid cells blocks FGF effects and reduces goitrogenesis in mice.


Levels of fibroblast growth factor 2 (FGF-2) and its receptor, FGFR1, are elevated in goiter, but whether this is a direct effect of TSH is unknown. We have determined the regulation of FGF-2 and FGFR1 synthesis by TSH in a rat thyroid cell line (FRTL5) and have used a replication-defective adenovirus (RAd) expressing dominant negative FGFR1 (RAdDN-FGFR1… (More)
