Two types of cDNAs encoding novel human FGF receptors were isolated. These two cDNAs were found to be closely related to the oncogene bek. Products from these genes were membrane-bound when their cDNAs were transiently expressed in COS cells, whereas products from the regions coding extracellular domains were free of membrane attachment and found in the culture medium.
