FGF is a multifunctional heparin-binding protein which was characterized by its mitogenic and angiogenic action outside the nervous system. Recent data confirm this multifunctionality also with regard to the nervous system. The distribution of FGF and its receptors seems not to be in agreement with the idea of a single function for one population but argues for a more complex action, which might be dependent on the development stage and cell type. FGF and its receptors are widely distributed in… CONTINUE READING
