Fibroblast growth factor-basic (FGF-basic) is a heparin-binding growth factor which belongs to a family of Fibroblast Growth Factors (FGFs). FGFs are involved in many physiological and pathological processes including embryonic development, neuronal outgrowth, angiogenesis, and malignant transformation. FGF-basic is essential for the development and maintenance of vascular integrity during embryogenesis.
