FGFR4 is perhaps the least well studied of the FGF receptors, and unlike the case for the other FGFR genes, mutations in FGFR4 are not known to be associated with any developmental disorders. Recently, however, somatically arising mutations in the FGFR4 coding sequence have begun to be identified in some cancers. (Taylor, 2009; Ruhe, 2007; Roidl, 2010). The resulting mutant versions of FGFR4 promote aberrant signaling through ligand-independent dimerization and enhanced autophosphorylation, among other mechanisms (Roidl, 2009; Taylor, 2009).
