Background: FGFR4

Fibroblast growth factor receptor 4 (FGFR4) belongs to a family of type I transmembrane tyrosine kinases which mediate the biological functions of FGFs that are involved in a multitude of physiological and pathological cellular processes (1). The FGFR family is comprised of 4 structurally conserved members (FGFR1-4) all possessing and extracellular domain (ECD) with three immunoglobulin (Ig)-like domains, an acid-box region containing a run of acidic residues between the IgI and IgII domains, a transmembrane domain and the split tyrosine-kinase domain (1, 2). The ECD of mature human FGFR4 shares 90% amino acid sequence identity with mouse FGFR4. Alternative splicing of the IgIII domain generates multiple forms of FGFR1-3, but FGFR4 does not have a splice variant (3, 4). FGFR4 exhibits distinct and varying binding affinities for different FGF ligands, with FGF1, FGF4, and FGF8 showing the highest affinity (4). FGFRs mediate the FGF signaling cascade which regulate developmental processes including cellular proliferation, differentiation, and migration, morphogenesis, and patterning (5). FGFRs transduce the signals through three dominant pathways including RAS/MAPK, PI3k/AKT, and PLC gamma (6). FGFR4 is expressed at high levels during embryonic development and is required for the maintenance of both lipid and glucose metabolism as well as an established role in cholesterol metabolism (7). Overexpression of the FGFR4 has been reported in several solid tumors including breast cancer, prostate cancer, pancreatic cancer, and renal cell carcinoma (4, 8). Further, FGFR4 expression is significantly upregulated in most liver cancer cases, and enhanced FGF19-FGFR4 signaling is linked to hepatocellular carcinoma progression, metastasis, and poor survival (8). FGFR4 is being explored as a potential therapeutic target for breast cancer and other solid tumors (9).
