Third immunoglobulin (Ig)-like domain of fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 (FGFR2)
Ig3_FGFR-2-like; domain similar to the third immunoglobulin (Ig)-like domain of human fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 (FGFR2). Fibroblast growth factors (FGFs) participate in morphogenesis, development, angiogenesis, and wound healing. These FGF-stimulated processes are mediated by four FGFR tyrosine kinases (FGRF1-4). FGFRs are comprised of an extracellular portion consisting of three Ig-like domains, a transmembrane helix, and a cytoplasmic portion having protein tyrosine kinase activity. The highly conserved Ig-like domains 2 and 3, and the linker region between D2 and D3 define a general binding site for FGFs. FGFR2 is required for male sex determination.
