Development of novel monoclonal antibodies for the analysis of functional sites in FGF-2.


Fibroblast growth factor 2 (FGF-2) can function as a potent mitogen, as well as a survival factor for a variety of mammalian cell types. The biological effects of FGF-2 are mediated by its interaction with two types of cellular binding sites: (1) high affinity tyrosine kinase receptors; and (2) low affinity heparan sulfate proteoglycans (HSPGs) on the cell… (More)
