Research resource: Comprehensive expression atlas of the fibroblast growth factor system in adult mouseFon Tacer, Klementina ...Although members of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family and their receptors have well-established roles in embryogenesis, their contributions toadult physiology remain relatively unexplored. ... Here, we use real-time quantitative PCR to determine the mRNA expression patterns of all 22 FGFs, the seven principal FGF receptors (FGFRs), and the three members of the Klothofamily of coreceptors in 39 different mouse tissues. Unsupervised hierarchical cluster analysis of the mRNA expression data reveals that most FGFs and FGFRs fall into two groups the expression of which is enriched in either the central nervous system or reproductive and gastrointestinal tissues. Interestingly, the FGFs that can act as endocrine hormones, includingFGF15/19, FGF21, and FGF23, cluster in a third group that does not include any FGFRs, underscoring their roles in signaling between tissues. We further show that the most recently identified Klotho family member, Lactase-like, is highly and selectively expressed in brown adipose tissue and eye and can function as an additional coreceptor for FGF19. This FGF atlas provides an important resource for guiding future studies to elucidate the physiological functions of FGFs in adult animals.Source: Molecular endocrinology. - ISSN 0888-8809 (Vol.24, issue 10, 2010, str. 2050-2064)Type of material - article, component partPublish date - 2010Language - englishCOBISS.SI-ID - 27306713
