The fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR) family consists of four transmembrane receptor tyrosine kinases (FGFR1‐4), which regulate important physiological processes, such as cell proliferation, differentiation, migration and survival throughout the body. FGFR2b is known as the epithelial FGFR2 isoform.
FGFR2b/KGFR is exclusively expressed in epithelial cells and can be activated by stimulation with its specific ligands FGF7/KGF or FGF10. Ligand binding results in a signalling cascade which includes phosphoinositide 3‐kinase (PI3K) and mitogen‐activated protein kinase (MAPK) signalling pathways and/or activation of phospholipase C-γ (Plc-γ). FGFR2b activation culminates in the survival, growth, and differentiation of epithelial cells, triggers phagocytosis and melanosome uptake in human keratinocytes and is critical for proper craniofacial development.
