The field of developmental biology covers the broad range of cellular and molecular processes required during the growth of a single fertilized cell into a multicellular organism. The illustrations found in this section feature signaling pathways that are important for developmental events such as cell division, differentiation, gastrulation, migration, morphogenesis, and regional specification.
Featured Pathway - FGF Family Signaling Pathways
The illustration shows the intracellular signaling pathways that are induced following FGF receptor activation. Interact with the illustration to see additional information about the members of the different FGF subfamilies, their reported receptor binding specificities and physiological functions, and the pathologies associated with mutation or amplification of different FGFs.
