FGFR2 Gene Editing    

FGFR2, also named CD332, is a transmembrane protein and belongs to the fibroblast growth factor receptors family (FGFR family), which are mitogenic signaling molecules that have roles in important processes such as cell division, regulation of cell growth and mutation, the formation of blood vessels, wound healing, and embryonic development. FGFR2 is a transmembrane catalytic receptor with intracellular tyrosine kinase activity, similar to FGFRs. The FGFR2 gene is located on human chromosome 10 and expresses two slightly different subtypes: FGFR2IIIb, which is mainly expressed in epithelial cells, and FGFR2IIIc, which is mainly expressed in mesenchymal cells.

When bound to a ligand, FGFR2 activates a series of intracellular signaling pathways, including the RAS-MAPK pathway, the PI3K/AKT pathway. FGFR2 signal is down-regulated by ubiquitination, internalization, and degradation. Studies have shown that mutations in FGFR2 are associated with many diseases such as Apert syndrome, Crouzon syndrome, Jackson-Weiss syndrome, Pfeifer syndrome, and so on (table 1). In addition, changes in FGFR2 gene activity may promote tumorigenesis and metastasis by promoting cell proliferation, cell movement, and neovascular development that nourishes growth tumors. For example, FGFR2 gene expression is elevated in certain types of gastric cancer, which is associated with poor disease prognosis. Changes in FGFR2 gene expression are also associated with ovarian, breast, cervical, pancreatic, and head and neck cancers. Researches on inhibitors of FGFR2 signaling are expected to provide new directions and ideas for new drug development, especially targeted drugs for cancer therapy.
