Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Members of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family contribute to various cellular processes. Recent reports elucidate the involvement of FGFs as chemoattractants that influence diverse cellular events such as imaginal patterning in Drosophila and gastrulation in amniotes. These studies underscore the enticing activity of FGFs and raise interesting questions regarding subsequent transformations in cellular identity.
