General description

Since FGF-Basic is found in a variety of organs, acts on a wide range of cell types, and has multifunctional actions, it has acquired numerous synonyms, including heparin-binding growth factor (class II or beta), eye-derived growth factor I, cartilage-derived growth factor, and astroglial growth factor II5. Purified bovine and human FGF-basic differ by 3 amino acids in sequence3, and are biologically and immunologically cross-reactive.
