General description

FGF-2 (fibroblast growth factor 2) is a basic heparin binding growth factor. It is ubiquitously expressed and belongs to the FGF family. It is also referred to as BFGF (basic fibroblast growth factor). The recombinant mouse FGF-2 is a single, non-glycosylated chain containing 145 amino acids and having a molecular weight of 16.3kDa.

Biochem/physiol Actions

FGF-2 (fibroblast growth factor 2, also referred to as BFGF (basic fibroblast growth factor)) stimulates the proliferation of a wide variety of cells including mesenchymal, neuroectodermal and endothelial cells. It is present in the preimplantation embryos and is important for proper development. It is also responsible for angiogenesis. FGF-2 plays a crucial role in adipogenesis and development of adipose tissues. It is associated with tumor growth and metastasis.

Physical form

In fertile women, the endometrium undergoes regular cycles of tissue build-up and regression. It is likely that uterine stem cells are involved in this remarkable turn over. The main goal of our current investigations was to identify slow-cycling (quiescent) endometrial...
