Chemical Fibroblast Growth Factors

Name Fibroblast Growth Factors
CAS Type 1 Name Fibroblast growth factor
Equivalent Terms DNA Synthesis Factor | Fibroblast Growth Factor | Fibroblast Growth Regulatory Factor | Growth Factor, Fibroblast | Growth Factors, Fibroblast
CAS Registry Number 62031-54-3
Definition A family of small polypeptide growth factors that share several common features including a strong affinity for HEPARIN, and a central barrel-shaped core region of 140 amino acids that is highly homologous between family members. Although originally studied as proteins that stimulate the growth of fibroblasts this distinction is no longer a requirement for membership in the fibroblast growth factor family.
Curation Status No associations have been curated for this chemical yet.
