    ..Application of an FGF-4 soaked bead to the apex of the limb bud maintained AP-2 expression. Thus AP-2 is involved in outgrowth and could be regulated by factors such as FGFs that are present in the ectoderm of both the face and limb. ..

    ..In total, these results indicate that AP-2 alpha is a transcriptional repressor of FGFR1 gene expression during skeletal myogenesis. ..
