Fibroblast Growth Factor 1 (FGF1) and FGF2 are involved in the development of the central nervous system. We evaluated the spatiotemporal distributions of FGF1 and FGF2 in the ICR male mouse cerebrum from Postnatal day 0 (P0) to P360. Western blot analysis of whole cerebrum extracts confirmed that FGF2 gradually increased during P10 to P90 and thereafter reached a plateau. FGF2 was detected as early as P0 and invariable throughout the study period. Cryosections of the cerebrums were subjected to immunohistochemistry, to demonstrate the localization of FGF1 and FGF2. The study has detected the time-course of the appearance of FGF1 and FGF2 immunoreactivity in the mouse brain. The occurrence of active neurite outgrowth, synapse formation, and sprouting was identified including eyelids opening, Corti’s organ, terminal differentiation, and initiation of myelination.
