The protein encoded by the FGFR2 gene is a member of the fibroblast growth factor receptor family, where amino acid sequence is highly conserved between members and throughout evolution. FGFR family members differ from one another in their ligand affinities and tissue distribution. A full-length representative protein consists of an extracellular region, composed of three immunoglobulin-like domains, a single hydrophobic membrane-spanning segment and a cytoplasmic tyrosine kinase domain. The extracellular portion of the protein interacts with fibroblast growth factors, setting in motion a cascade of downstream signals, ultimately influencing mitogenesis and differentiation. This particular family member is a high-affinity receptor for acidic, basic and/or keratinocyte growth factor, depending on the isoform. Mutations in FGFR2 are associated with many forms of Craniosynostosis, including Crouzon syndrome (CS), Pfeiffer syndrome (PS), Apert syndrome (APRS), Jackson-Weiss syndrome (JWS), Beare-Stevenson cutis gyrata syndrome (BSTVS), Saethre-Chotzen syndrome (SCS), and Familial scaphocephaly syndrome (FSPC). Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been noted for FGFR2 (provided by RefSeq, Jan 2009).
