Xenopus oocytes expressing fibroblast growth factor receptors (FGFRs) from the hormone-independent breast cancer cells, MDA-MB-231, are used as a biological system to analyze the signalling cascades initiated by FGF1. FGF1 induces ERK2 phosphorylation and G2/M transition. These events are dependent on the Shc/Grb2/Ras pathway, on Src and PI3Kinase (PI3K… CONTINUE READING
