Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) receptors decrease with luteal age in rat ovarian luteal cells: colocalization of bFGF receptors and bFGF in luteal cells


, : Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) receptors decrease with luteal age in rat ovarian luteal cells: colocalization of bFGF receptors and bFGF in luteal cells. Endocrinology 133(3): 1074-1084

This study examined high- and low-affinity receptors for basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) in luteal cells and tissue throughout the lifespan of the corpus luteum, using ovaries from gonadotropin-treated rats. High-affinity and low-capacity bFGF-binding sites were found on luteal cells.

We have shown (Presta et al., Cell Regul., 2:719-726, 1991) that a long-lasting interaction of basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) with endothelial GM 7373 cells is required to induce cell proliferation. In the present work, we have investigated...
