Disease relevance of FGF2


High impact information on FGF2


Chemical compound and disease context of FGF2

  • CONCLUSIONS: Selective pressure-regulated retroinfusion increased tissue binding of FGF-2 and enhanced functionally relevant collateral perfusion compared with antegrade intracoronary delivery in pigs with chronic myocardial ischemia [2].

Biological context of FGF2


Anatomical context of FGF2

  • The regulation of the basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF, or FGF-2) receptor on porcine granulosa cells was studied [10].
  • In the presence of FGF2 (20 ng/mL), the percentage of photoreceptor survival during the second week in culture was statistically significantly different, at least two times higher than in control experiments [14].
  • Levels of natriuretic peptides were significantly decreased, and levels of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF2) were significantly increased after BMI [15].
  • CONCLUSIONS: The function of ischemic myocardium can be restored by a novel FGF2 gene delivery method using a gene-activated matrix [1].
  • In a separate series of experiments porcine coronary arteries were chronically treated with FGF-2 itself in the same manner [16].

Associations of FGF2 with chemical compounds

  • EB induced a significant suppression of FGF-2 mRNA, an effect which was antagonized by P and even prevented by P+EB [9].
  • Phosphotyrosine immunoblots after stimulation of cultures with FGF2 and EGF revealed time-dependent appearance of multiple immunoreactive bands [14].
  • Under these conditions, both inducers stimulated rapid activation of extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK2) at 5-10 min, a transient and lower intensity being induced by U46619 whereas that induced by FGF-2 was sustained (>1 h) [17].
  • However, activation of ERK2 by FGF-2 was not affected by PGE2 whereas that of JNK1 by U46619 was inhibited, suggesting that inhibition of COX-2 expression by cAMP may be downstream of ERK2 [17].
  • Short heparin sequences spaced by glycol-split uronate residues are antagonists of fibroblast growth factor 2 and angiogenesis inhibitors [18].

Regulatory relationships of FGF2

  • In contrast, activation of Jun-N-terminal kinase (JNK1) was sustained with U46619 but poorly induced by FGF-2 [17].
