[Chick brain-derived growth factor] CBGF is a biochemically uncharacterized protein of approximately 1.5 kDa that was isolated from chicken brain and acts as a strong mitogen for astrocytes.
CBGF is a potent mitogen in vitro, at nanomolar concentrations, for both blastema cells and Swiss mouse 3T3 fibroblasts. CBGF is not identical with substance P, FGF from bovine brain and pituitary, EGF, transferrin, and an undefined spinal cord growth factor (Carlone and Rathbone, 1985).
