    Hatch N. FGF signaling in craniofacial biological control and pathological craniofacial development. Crit Rev Eukaryot Gene Expr. 2010;20:295-311 pubmed
    ..In this review we will discuss recent in vitro and in vivo studies investigating biologic mechanisms by which signaling through FGFRs influences skeletal development and can lead to craniosynostosis...

    ..These results identify a novel mechanism by which TNAP promotes calvarial progenitor cell renewal and indicate that converging pathways exist downstream of FGF signaling and TNAP activity to control craniofacial skeletal development. ..

    Hatch N. Potential role of PC-1 expression and pyrophosphate elaboration in the molecular etiology of the FGFR-associated craniosynostosis syndromes. Orthod Craniofac Res. 2007;10:53-8 pubmed
    ..These results suggest that the expression of PC-1 downstream of FGF signaling is an integral aspect of osteoblastic function, and that pyrophosphate elaboration may play a significant role in the pathology of craniosynostosis. ..

    ..Taken together, our results establish that FGF2 is a specific inducer of PC-1 in pre-osteoblast cells and that FGF2 induces PC-1 expression through a mechanism involving Runx2. ..
