description
FGFRL1 is a fifth member of the FGFR family of receptors. The extracellular region has 40% sequence similarity with FGFR1-4, but FGFRL1 lacks the internal kinase domain of the other FGF receptors and how it acts in FGFR signaling is unclear. Some models suggest FGFRL1 restricts canonical FGFR signaling by sequestering ligand away from kinase-active receptors, while other models suggest that FGFRL1 may promote canonical signaling by nucleating signaling complexes or enhancing ERK1/2 activation (reviewed in Trueb, 2011; Trueb et al, 2013)
