The development of multicellular embryos depends on coordinated cell-to-cell signalling events. Among the numerous cell-signalling pathways, fibroblast growth factors (FGFs) are involved in important processes during embryogenesis, such as mesoderm formation during gastrulation and growth. In vertebrates, the Fgf superfamily consists of 22 family members, whereas only few FGFs are contained in the less complex genomes of insects and worms. In the recently sequenced genome of the beetle… CONTINUE READING
