High affinity receptors to acidic and basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF) are detected mainly in adult brain membrane preparations but not in liver, kidney, intestine, lung or stomach.

Abstract

We have previously shown that only adult brain contained a detectable amount of high affinity receptors for basic Fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) whereas adult liver, kidney, lung, intestine or stomach showed only low affinity binding sites. We now have studied and compared the distribution of the receptors for acidic Fibroblast growth factor (aFGF) with… (More)
