Human KGF is FGF-related with properties of a paracrine effector of epithelial cell growth

Finch, P.; Rubin, J.; Miki, T.; Ron, D.; Aaronson, S.

Keratinocyte growth factor (KGF) is a human mitogen that is specific for epithelial cells. The complementary DNA sequence of KGF demonstrates that it is a member of the fibroblast growth factor family. The KGF transcript was present in stromal cells derived from epithelial tissues. By comparison with the expression of other epithelial cell mitogens, only KGF, among known human growth factors, has the properties of a stromal mediator of epithelial cell proliferation.
