Efficacy and selectivity of FGF2-saporin cytosolically delivered by PCI in cells overexpressing FGFR1

Vikan AK, Kostas M, Haugsten EM, Selbo PK, Wesche J (2021) Efficacy and selectivity of FGF2-saporin cytosolically delivered by PCI in cells overexpressing FGFR1. Cells 10(6):1476. doi: 10.3390/cells10061476

Summary: Fibroblast growth factor receptors (FGFRs) have become an attractive target in cancer research and therapy due to their implication in several cancers. The authors evaluated the efficacy and selectivity of PCI of FGF2-saporin (FGF-SAP) in cells overexpressing FGFR1. The authors conclude that to prevent off-target effects of FGF-based toxins, it will be necessary to circumvent binding to HSPGs, for example by mutating the binding site of FGF2 to HSPGs.
