Abstract

Although first characterized by virtue of their ability to stimulate endothelial cell proliferation in vitro and angiogenesis in vivo, the fibroblast growth factors are now also well recognized for their neurotrophic activities. Understanding the physiological significance of these multifunctional, virtually ubiquitous and pluripotential molecules, however, remains enigmatic. Recent advances describing their molecular, biochemical and biological characteristics has led to a better understanding of their role in the central nervous system.
