FGFR1 Gene Editing    

FGFR1 (Fibroblast growth factor receptor 1), also known as fms-related tyrosine kinase-2/Pfeiffer syndrome, is a member of the fibroblast growth factor receptor (FGFR) family. FGFR family is cell surface membrane receptor that possesses tyrosine kinase activity. When combined with appropriate FGF, FGFR1 elicits cellular responses such as proliferation, migration, and differentiation by activating a series of intracellular signaling pathways including Ras subfamily/ERK, PKC, phospholipase C/PI3K/AKT, Ip3-induced raising of cytosolic Ca2+, Ca2+/calmodulin-activated elements and pathways.

Studies have shown that mutations in FGFR1 are associated with Pfeiffer syndrome, Jackson-Weiss syndrome, Antley-Bixler syndrome, Osteoglobulin dysplasia, and autosomal dominant Kallmann syndrome2. And chromosomal aberrations involving FGFR1 are associated with stem cell myeloproliferative disorders and stem cell leukemia lymphoma syndrome. At the same time, FGFR1 also has a certain correlation with tumors (Table 1). FGFR1 promotes inflammation via activating NF-κB signaling in the tumor microenvironment. Due to the importance of FGFR1 in cell life activities, studies on the molecular mechanism of FGFR1 in the pathogenesis of cancer and the studies of FGFR1 as a therapeutic target FGFR1 are still hot research topics in life sciences.
