FGF basic, otherwise known as FGF 2 (fibroblast growth factor 2) is a member of the heparin-binding growth factor family which exists in both cytosolic and nuclear isoforms, ranging in size from 18-24kD, expressed by the majority of cells and tissues. FGF 2 is a multi-functional growth factor identified as a potent inducer of angiogenesis, an important factor in wound healing, tumor vascularisation and cardiovascular disease and is pivotal for the development and maintenance of vascular integrity during embryogenesis.
