Fibroblast Growth Factor Production Pathway Bioinformatics
Fibroblast growth factors (FGFs) are involved in a multitude of functions including wound healing, embryonic development, and angiogenesis, and can be the cause of tumor growth and maintenance as they promote endothelial cell growth and capillary differentiation. FGFs have also been shown to have an impact on SMC replication in asthma as well as atherosclerosis. FGF signal transductions are due to interactions with heparan sulfate proteoglycans on the cell surface, as the FGFs are able to bind with heparin. There a multitude of factors that lay behind the stimulation of FGF production, and studies have found that chlamydial infection of BSMC as well as alveolar macrophages that arise upon an acute lung injury can initiate the production of FGFs.
