Abstract

Fibroblast growth factors (FGFs) are heparin-binding polypeptides involved in many important developmental processes including tissue patterning. FGFs act by binding to specific FGF receptors (FGFRs) that possess an intracellular kinase domain. In adult tissues, FGFs are involved in metabolic regulation, tissue repair, angiogenesis, and mitogenesis. Perturbations in FGF-FGFR expression, localization, and signaling have been implicated in several pathological processes, including malignant transformation, tumor spread, and metastasis. After a brief summary about FGFs and FGFRs and their physiologic actions, this article gives an overview about the involvement of FGFs and FGFRs in malignant diseases.
