Three forms of rat basic fibroblast growth factor are made from a single mRNA and localize to the nucleus.

Abstract

The molecular weight of rat basic fibroblast growth factor is predicted to be 18 kDa when the amino acid sequence is read from the single AUG initiation codon found in the cDNA. DNA sequencing upstream of this AUG codon indicated, however, that there was an extended open reading frame. In vitro translation of the rat cDNA for basic FGF gave three proteins… (More)
