Cell signalling. Do adhesion molecules signal via FGF receptors?

Curr Biol. 1994 Dec 1;4(12):1158-61. doi: 10.1016/s0960-9822(00)00263-3.


Increasing evidence suggests that cadherin and immunoglobulin-family cell adhesion molecules can activate FGF receptors. This interaction may be crucial to developmental processes that are regulated by adhesion.
