Fibroblast growth factor 21

FGF21, Fibroblast growth factor 21
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family. FGF family members possess broad mitogenic and cell survival activities and are involved in a variety of biological processes including embryonic development, cell growth, morphogenesis, tissue repair, tumor growth and invasion. The function of this growth factor has not yet been determined. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Dixit et al., New Haven, United States. In Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A, Feb 2016
Here we show that the prolongevity ketogenic hormone fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21), a member of the endocrine FGF subfamily, is expressed in thymic stromal cells along with FGF receptors and its obligate coreceptor, βKlotho.

Chattipakorn et al., Chiang Mai, Thailand. In Metab Brain Dis, Feb 2016
UNASSIGNED: Fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21) is an endocrine hormone, playing an important role in the regulation of metabolism.
Therapeutic potential of the endocrine fibroblast growth factors FGF19, FGF21 and FGF23.
Moschetta et al., Bari, Italy. In Nat Rev Drug Discov, Jan 2016
The endocrine fibroblast growth factors (FGFs), FGF19, FGF21 and FGF23, are critical for maintaining whole-body homeostasis, with roles in bile acid, glucose and lipid metabolism, modulation of vitamin D and phosphate homeostasis and metabolic adaptation during fasting.
FGF21 Regulates Sweet and Alcohol Preference.
Kliewer et al., Cambridge, United States. In Cell Metab, Jan 2016
UNASSIGNED: Fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21) is a hormone induced by various metabolic stresses, including ketogenic and high-carbohydrate diets, that regulates energy homeostasis.
FGF21 Mediates Endocrine Control of Simple Sugar Intake and Sweet Taste Preference by the Liver.
Potthoff et al., Copenhagen, Denmark. In Cell Metab, Jan 2016
Here we show that the liver regulates carbohydrate intake through production of the hepatokine fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21), which markedly suppresses consumption of simple sugars, but not complex carbohydrates, proteins, or lipids.
Practical prospects for boosting hepatic production of the "pro-longevity" hormone FGF21.
McCarty, In Horm Mol Biol Clin Investig, Jan 2016
UNASSIGNED: Fibroblast growth factor-21 (FGF21), produced mainly in hepatocytes and adipocytes, promotes leanness, insulin sensitivity, and vascular health while down-regulating hepatic IGF-I production.

In this review, we discuss three different drug classes [the thiazolidinedione (TZD) class of PPARγ agonists, β3-adrenergic receptor agonists, and fibroblast growth factor 21 (FGF21) analogs] that have been proposed to regulate BAT and beige recruitment or activation, or both, and which have been tested in both rodent and human.
