Localization of rat FGF-5 protein in skin macrophage-like cells and FGF-5S protein in hair follicle: possible involvement of two Fgf-5 gene products in hair growth cycle regulation.


It has been reported that the gene for murine fibroblast growth factor-5 (Fgf-5) is expressed in the rat hair follicle and that this expression may be associated with catagen induction (Hebert et al, 1994). In this study, we analyzed the Fgf-5 gene product in skin because the gene generates two mRNA that translate into the FGF-5 protein and a short form of… (More)
