To address these questions we examined FGF-2 mRNA and its FGFR mRNA expression in proliferating precursor cells of the SVZ by using a double labeling procedure, combining in situ hybridization for FGF-2 and its FGFR mRNA with immunohistochemistry for bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU), a marker for proliferating cells. The results showed that FGFR1 and FGFR2 mRNAs were expressed in BrdU-labeled proliferating precursor cells, whereas FGFR3 and FGF-2 mRNAs were not, suggesting that in the SVZ the proliferating precursor cells express FGFR1 or FGFR2 and they may respond to FGF-2 released by non-proliferating cells. The FGFR4 mRNA was not found expressed in the SVZ. In the future, by identifying the cell types expressing FGFRs, it will be possible to gain insight into the functional activity of FGF2 within the SVZ
