GLOSSARY & ABBREVIATIONS

FGF

Fibroblast growth factor

back to overview

Fibroblast growth factors (FGF) are a family of growth factors involved in angiogenesis, wound healing, and embryonic development. Although originally studied as proteins that stimulate the growth of fibroblasts this distinction is no longer a requirement for membership in the fibroblast growth factor family.
