FGF basic (FGF-2) is a growth factor that functions in angiogenesis, wound healing, tissue repair, learning and memory, and the morphogenesis of heart, bone, and brain. Its bioactivity is modulated by a number of other binding partners including heparin, FGF-BP, Thrombospondin, Pentraxin 3/TSG-14, Fibrinogen, PDGF, and CXCL4/PF4. In normal tissue, basic fibroblast growth factor is present in basement membranes and in the subendothelial extracellular matrix of blood vessels. In addition, it is synthesized and secreted by human adipocytes and the concentration of bFGF correlates with the BMI in blood samples.
bFGF has been shown in preliminary animal studies to protect the heart from injury associated with a heart attack, reducing tissue death and promoting improved function after reperfusion. Recent evidence has shown that low levels of FGF2 play a key role in the incidence of excessive anxiety.
