High impact information on FGF22


Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of FGF22

  • FGF8 and FGF22 were detected by RT-PCR, but not by microarrays during late cleavage divisions [3].
  • Mouse FGF-22 mRNA was found to be preferentially expressed in the skin among the mouse adult tissues examined by Northern blotting analysis [2].
