Abstract:  The pathogenic mechanism underlying the hyperproliferation of keratinocytes in psoriasis is still not completely clarified. The production of cytokines released by activated T lymphocytes infiltrating the upper dermis probably has a crucial role. Even dermal fibroblasts can participate in the process through the secretion of growth factors, and some studies have reported an increased expression of the insulin‐like growth factor 1. Few studies, however, have focused on the possible… 
Expression of keratinocyte growth factor and its receptor in clear cell acanthoma
TLDR
Results suggest the inflammatory nature of CCA and support the hypothesis that this disease may represent, like psoriasis, an inflammatory dermatosis in which KGF up‐modulation may be responsible for keratinocyte hyperproliferation and may represent a new common feature of both diseases.
The expression of keratinocyte growth factor receptor (FGFR2‐IIIb) correlates with the high proliferative rate of HaCaT keratinocytes
TLDR
FGFR2‐IIIb expression in HaCaT keratinocytes corresponds with the proliferative activation of the cells and is not related to the differentiation programme.
FGF-7 facilitates the process of psoriasis by inducing TNF-α expression in HaCaT cells.
TLDR
It is found that FGF-7 induces TNF-α expression in HaCaT cells and F-7 antibody F-9 alleviates IMQ-induced psoriasiform in mice, indicating that F GF-7/FGFR2 signaling pathway is a potential target for psoriasis treatment.
Cholesteatoma-associated fibroblasts modulate epithelial growth and differentiation through KGF/FGF7 secretion
TLDR
Results suggest that the activation of the stromal fibroblasts present in the pathological tissue, and the consequent increased secretion of KGF, play a crucial role in the deregulation of the epidermal proliferation and differentiation.
Association of fibroblast growth factor 10 with the fibrotic and inflammatory pathogenesis of Graves’ orbitopathy
TLDR
FGF10 has beneficial effects on the inflammatory and fibrotic mechanisms of GO in primary cultured OFs, providing new insights into GO pathology and the discovery of FGF10 as a promising novel therapeutic application for the treatment of GO.
hMena: altered expression in psoriatic skin
TLDR
HMena expression is correlated to the rate of keratinocyte proliferation and activation, indicating hMena as a new possible player, involved in the development and/or maintenance of the hyperproliferative state of psoriatic keratinocytes.
Identification of Keratinocyte Mitogens: Implications for Hyperproliferation in Psoriasis and Atopic Dermatitis
Effect of nifedipine on the expression of keratinocyte growth factor and its receptor in cocultured/monocultured fibroblasts and keratinocytes.
TLDR
The expression of KGF and KGFR are influenced by the interplay of gingival keratinocytes and fibroblasts and may have an effect on the gingivals condition following treatment with nifedipine.
Regulation of epithelial cell growth factor receptor protein and gene expression using a rat periodontitis model.
TLDR
KGFR and HGFR are highly up-regulated in this model of periodontal disease and may play a significant role in regulating the proliferation and migration of pocket epithelium.
Paracrine Loops of Keratinocyte Stimulation in Cholesteatoma Tissue: An Immunofluorescence, Transmission Electron Microscopy, and Molecular Study
TLDR
The results would suggest that KGF up-modulation is a consequence of fibroblast stimulation by inflammatory cells and that this paracrine loop could be responsible not only for the hyperproliferation of keratinocytes in cholesteatoma tissue but also for the deregulation of epidermal differentiation.

Altered expression of keratinocyte growth factor and its receptor in psoriasis.
TLDR
Results suggest that increased KGFR-mediated signaling in keratinocytes in the lesional epidermis might account in part for the epidermal hyperplasia in psoriasis.
Regulation of keratinocyte growth factor gene expression by interleukin 1.
TLDR
The stimulation of KGF expression by IL1 and other cytokines such as IL6, transforming growth factor alpha, and platelet-derived growth factor may provide a mechanism for KGF induction during inflammation that would support its proposed role as mediator of reepithelialization and wound healing.
Modulation of keratinocyte growth factor receptor expression in human cultured keratinocytes.
TLDR
The results suggest that the expression of KGFR, unlike that of the epidermal growth factor receptor, may control the proliferative-differentiative program from basal to suprabasal cells in human skin.
Fibroblast growth factor 7, secreted by breast fibroblasts, is an interleukin-1beta-induced paracrine growth factor for human breast cells.
TLDR
FGF7 is produced by the breast stromal fibroblasts and has profound proliferative and morphogenic roles on both epithelial and myoepithelial cells, and is a paracrine growth factor in the breast.
Large induction of keratinocyte growth factor expression in the dermis during wound healing.
TLDR
The results suggest that basal keratinocytes are stimulated by dermally derived KGF during wound healing and implicate a unique role of this member of the FGF family in wound repair.
Large induction of keratinocyte growth factor expression by serum growth factors and pro-inflammatory cytokines in cultured fibroblasts.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that KGF mRNA and protein expression is low in quiescent fibroblasts but is strongly induced upon serum stimulation, which suggests that serum which is released upon hemorrhage as well as pro-inflammatory cytokines might be responsible for the KGF induction in vivo during skin repair.
Human keratinocyte growth factor activity on proliferation and differentiation of human keratinocytes: Differentiation response distinguishes KGF from EGF family
TLDR
It is demonstrated that KGF is as potent as EGF in stimulating proliferation of primary or secondary human keratinocytes in tissue culture and functionally distinguish KGF from the EGF family and support the role of KGF in the normal proliferation and differentiation of human epithelial cells.
Fibroblast growth factor 10 induces proliferation and differentiation of human primary cultured keratinocytes.
TLDR
Cell counting, 5-bromo-2'-deoxyuridine incorporation, and western blot analysis showed that fibroblast growth factor 10, similarly to keratinocyte growth factor, not only is a potent mitogen for human keratinocytes, but also promotes the expression of both early differentiation markers K1 and K10 and late differentiation marker filaggrin in response to the Ca2+ signal.
Involvement of insulin-like growth factor-I in psoriasis as a paracrine growth factor: dermal fibroblasts play a regulatory role in developing psoriatic lesions
TLDR
Results indicate that dermal fibroblasts may contribute to the epidermal hyperplasia of psoriasis by promoting keratinocyte proliferation through IGF-I, whose secretion could be modulated by inflammatory cytokines.
Human keratinocyte growth factor effects in a porcine model of epidermal wound healing
TLDR
The present findings have significant implications concerning the role of KGF as a paracrine modulator of epidermal proliferation and differentiation.
