This study showed that serum FGF22 levels in depressive patients were negatively correlated with serum IL-1beta levels. In animal and cell experiments, enhancing the levels of FGF22 in rat hippocampus was demonstrated to alleviate the chronic unpredictable mild stress-induced depression. The increase in FGF22 was found to be associated with reduced IL-1beta expression and hippocampal apoptosis.
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family. FGF family members possess broad mitogenic and cell survival activities and are involved in a variety of biological processes including embryonic development, cell growth, morphogenesis, tissue repair, tumor growth and invasion. The mouse homolog of this gene was found to be preferentially expressed in the inner root sheath of the hair follicle, which suggested a role in hair development.
