24668462 The position of sulfate ions bound to FGF18 provides insight into the putative HS-binding site and allows comparison with the prototypical FGFs, FGF1, and FGF2.
24577103 Fgf18 as a molecule that protects articular cartilage by gene expression profiling, and the anticatabolic effects may at least partially be mediated by the Timp1 expression.
24018557 Tumors from ovarian cancer patients had increased FGF18 expression levels with microvessel density and M2 macrophage infiltration.
23397188 role for FGF-18 in chondrogenic and osteogenic events which drive discal development and ossification of the vertebral bodies.
21319186 FGF8, FGF17, and FGF18 are involved in autocrine and paracrine signaling in HCC and enhance the survival of tumor cells under stress conditions, malignant behavior, and neoangiogenesis.
21048031 Observational study of gene-disease association and gene-environment interaction. (HuGE Navigator)
20507176 FGF2 and -18 bind to discrete structures on the heparan sulfate chains attached to chondrocyte-derived perlecan which modulate the growth factor activities
19909293 fibroblast growth factor 18 seems to play a role in maintenance of chondrocyte properties, although its expression was rather high in dedifferentiated chondrocytes.
19727229 There was an association between gene FGF18 rs4043716 and nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without palate in Chinese population.
