Fibroblast growth factor 7

keratinocyte growth factor, KGF, Fibroblast Growth Factor 7, FGF7
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. This protein is a potent epithelial cell-specific growth factor, whose mitogenic activity is predominantly exhibited in keratinocytes but not in fibroblasts and endothelial cells. Studies of mouse and rat homologs of this gene implicated roles in morphogenesis of epithelium, reepithelialization of wounds, hair development and early lung organogenesis.

Mechanisms of fibroblast growth factor signaling in the ovarian follicle.
Review
New
Price, Saint-Hyacinthe, Canada. In J Endocrinol, Feb 2016
Other FGFs have also been implicated in ovarian function, and this review summarizes the effects of members of two subfamilies on ovarian function; the FGF7 subfamily that also contains FGF10, and the FGF8 subfamily that also contains FGF18.
Mesenchymal stem cells protect from hypoxia-induced alveolar epithelial-mesenchymal transition.
New
Planès et al., Paris, France. In Am J Physiol Lung Cell Mol Physiol, Jan 2016
Our results indicate that hMSCs prevent hypoxia-induced alveolar EMT through the paracrine modulation of EMT signalling pathways, and suggest that this effect is partly mediated by KGF.

Guo et al., Zhangjiakou, China. In Transl Res, Jan 2016
Furthermore, ABMSC transplantation resulted in elevated serum levels of the anti-inflammatory cytokine interleukin-11 (IL10) and intestinal radioprotective factors, such as keratinocyte growth factor, basic fibroblast growth factor-2, and platelet-derived growth factor-B while reducing the serum level of the inflammatory cytokine IL17.
Genome-wide identification, phylogeny, and expression of fibroblast growth genes in common carp.

Xu et al., Shanghai, China. In Gene, Jan 2016
By examining the copy number of FGFs in several vertebrate genomes, we found that eight FGFs in common carp have undergone gene duplications, including FGF6a, FGF6b, FGF7, FGF8b, FGF10a, FGF11b, FGF13a, and FGF18b.

Review

Review
New
Matthay, San Francisco, United States. In Ann Am Thorac Soc, Mar 2015
The mechanisms for benefit are mediated in part by paracrine release of several antiinflammatory cytokines, keratinocyte growth factor, angiopoietin-1, as well as the release of antimicrobial peptides.
