Data Sheet

Background: Fibroblast growth factor receptor 3 (FGFR3) is a member of the fibroblast growth receptor family. FGFR3 is a receptor tyrosine kinase that is activated by both acidic and basic fibroblast growth factors. FGFR3 plays an important role in bone maintenance and development. Mutations in FGFR3 have been linked to osteochondrodysplasia, craniosynostosis, and achondroplasia. Recent studies have also shown that somatic mutations in the FGFR3 gene are associated with bladder cancer, cervical cancer, and multiple myeloma.

Application: Functional assays

Figure 1. Ligand-induced dose-dependent luciferase activity measured by FlexStation III after 24 hours of treatment with the ligand in starvation media containing 0.2% FBS. Figure 2. Receptor expression on cell surface measured by flow cytometry (FACS) using an anti-FGFR3 antibody. Thin line: parental cells; thick line: receptor-expressing cells.
