FGF signalling regulates bone growth through autophagy.
Pozzuoli, Italy. In Nature, Jan 2016
Surprisingly, post-natal induction of chondrocyte autophagy is mediated by the growth factor FGF18 through FGFR4 and JNK-dependent activation of the autophagy initiation complex VPS34-beclin-1.
FGF23 regulation of renal tubular solute transport.
Vienna, Austria. In Curr Opin Nephrol Hypertens, Sep 2015
RECENT FINDINGS: Recent evidence suggests that FGF23 suppresses phosphate reabsorption in renal proximal tubular epithelium by a Klotho-dependent, FGF receptor (FGFR)-1 and FGFR4-mediated signaling mechanism that may also involve Janus kinase 3.
