FGFRs are cell surface receptors that, when activated by specific FGFs ligands, transmit signals through the plasma membrane, regulating key cellular processes such as differentiation, division, motility, metabolism and death. We have recently shown that the modulation of the spatial distribution of FGFR1 at the cell surface constitutes an additional mechanism for fine-tuning cellular signaling. Depending on the multivalent, engineered ligand used, the clustering of FGFR1 into diverse supramolec...

BACKGROUND Antibody drug conjugates (ADCs) represent one of the most promising approaches in the current immuno-oncology research. The precise delivery of cytotoxic drugs to the cancer cells using ADCs specific for tumor-associated antigens enables sparing the healthy cells and thereby reduces unwanted side effects. Overexpression of fibroblast growth factor receptor 1 (FGFR1) has been demonstrated in numerous tumors and thereby constitutes a convenient molecular target for selective cancer trea...

Receptor tyrosine kinases (RTKs) constitute a large group of cell surface proteins that mediate communication of cells with extracellular environment. RTKs recognize external signals and transfer information to the cell interior, modulating key cellular activities, like metabolism, proliferation, motility, or death. To ensure balanced stream of signals the activity of RTKs is tightly regulated by numerous mechanisms, including receptor expression and degradation, ligand specificity and availabil...

Abstract Fibroblast growth factor receptors (FGFRs) are integral membrane proteins involved in various biological processes including proliferation, migration and apoptosis. There are a number of regulatory mechanisms of FGFR signaling, which tightly control the specificity and duration of transmitted signals. The effect of the FGFRs spatial distribution in the plasma membrane on receptor-dependent functions is still largely unknown. We have demonstrated that oligomerization of FGF1 with coiled-...

Abstract Fibroblast growth factors 1 and2 (FGF1 and FGF2) are mainly considered as ligands of surface receptors through which they regulate a broad spectrum of biological processes. They are secreted in non-canonical way and, unlike other growth factors, they are able to translocate from the endosome to the cell interior. These unique features, as well as the role of the intracellular pool of FGF1 and FGF2, are far from being fully understood. An increasing number of reports address this problem...

Cancer is currently the second most common cause of death worldwide. The hallmark of cancer cells is the presence of specific marker proteins such as growth factor receptors on their surface. This feature enables development of highly selective therapeutics, the protein bioconjugates, composed of targeting proteins (antibodies or receptor ligands) connected to highly cytotoxic drugs by a specific linker. Due to very high affinity and selectivity of targeting proteins the bioconjugates recognize ...

Fibroblast growth factor receptor 1 (FGFR1) transmits signals through the plasma membrane regulating essential cellular processes like division, motility, metabolism and death. Overexpression of FGFR1 is observed in numerous tumors and thus constitutes an attractive molecular target for selective cancer treatment. Targeted anti-cancer therapies aim for the precise delivery of drugs into cancer cells, sparing the healthy ones and thus limiting unwanted side effects. One of the key steps in target...

In spite of significant progress in the field of targeted anticancer therapy, the FDA has approved only five ADC-based drugs. Hence the search for new targeted anticancer agents is an unfulfilled n...

Fibroblast growth factor 2 (FGF2) is a heparin-binding growth factor with broad mitogenic and cell survival activities. Its effector functions are induced upon the formation of 2:2 FGF2:FGFR1 tetrameric complex. To facilitate receptor activation, and therefore, to improve the FGF2 biological properties, we preorganized dimeric ligand by a covalent linkage of two FGF2 molecules. Mutations of the FGF2 WT protein were designed to obtain variants with a single surface-exposed reactive cysteine for t...
