FGFR1 (also known as FLT2) is a member of the Fibroblast Growth Factor Receptor family that constitute a family of four membrane-spanning tyrosine kinases (FGFR1-4) which serve as high-affinity receptors for 17 growth factors (FGF1-17). The FGF Receptor family plays an important role in multiple biological processes, including mesoderm induction and patterning, cell growth and migration, organ formation and bone growth (1). FGFR1 is alternatively spliced generating multiple splice variants that are differentially expressed during embryo development and in the adult body (2).
