FGF-1, one of the most studied members of the fibroblast growth factor family, is a powerful mitogen exhibiting strong action on many different cell types. FGF-1 activity can be mediated not only by autocrine/paracrine pathways, but also by an intracrine pathway. FGF-1 lacks a secretion signal peptide and is exported through a non-classical pathway. Endogenous FGF-1 is found in the nucleus of most cell types. Nuclear localization is required for FGF-1 mitogenic activity. FGF-1 promotes tumor development by promoting cancer cell proliferation and survival. Increased FGF-1 expression in early stages of many different cancers have been reported. MCF-7 breast cancer cell lines that overexpress FGF-1 can form vascularized, metastatic tumors when injected into ovariectomized or tamoxifen-treated nude mice. FGF-1 also induces angiogenesis in vitro and in vivo. Thus, FGF-1 is an attractive candidate for cancer immunotargeting. FGF-1 is also involved in neuronal cell differentiation and survival. FGF-1 is highly expressed in motor neurons. In response to damage, motor neurons can release FGF-1, which results in astrocyte activation. Under oxidative stress, astrocytes can also release FGF-1, which stimulates ApoE/HDL generation in an autocrine manner for protection of the brain against oxidative stress. The involvement of FGF-1 in inflammation, cardioprotection, wound healing, adipocyte remodeling, and restenosis have also been reported.Product Details

AB_2565906 (BioLegend Cat. No. 678602)
- The 140 amino acid recombinant protein has a predicted molecular mass of approximately 16 kD. Growth factor.
- Secreted. FGF-1 is widely expressed in developing and adult tissues.
- FGF-1 plays an important role in many biological processes, including cell proliferation, inflammation, and angiogenesis. FGF-1 has a low stability and a very short half-life in vivo. Binding to heparin increases the stability of FGF-1 and is also important for the formation of active FGF-acidic/FGFR complex.
- Intracellular FGF-1 can interact directly with CK2, FIBP, mortalin, and the ribosome-binding protein p34/leucine-rich repeat containing 59 (LRRC59).
- FGF-1 can signal through all known cell-surface FGFR isoforms (FGFR1b, 1c, 2b, 2c, 3b, 3c, and 4). FGF-1 also binds to heparin and heparin sulfate proteoglycans on the cell surface.
