Summaries for FGF10 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for FGF10 Gene

  • 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. This protein exhibits mitogenic activity for keratinizing epidermal cells, but essentially no activity for fibroblasts, which is similar to the biological activity of FGF7. Studies of the mouse homolog of suggested that this gene is required for embryonic epidermal morphogenesis including brain development, lung morphogenesis, and initiation of lim bud formation. This gene is also implicated to be a primary factor in the process of wound healing. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for FGF10 Gene

FGF10 (Fibroblast Growth Factor 10) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FGF10 include aplasia of lacrimal and salivary glands and ladd syndrome. Among its related pathways are PI3K-Akt signaling pathway and PI-3K cascade. GO annotations related to this gene include growth factor activity and fibroblast growth factor receptor binding. An important paralog of this gene is FGF22.

Disorders for FGF10 Gene

(2) OMIM Diseases for FGF10 Gene (602115)


  • Aplasia of lacrimal and salivary glands (ALSG) [MIM:180920]: A rare condition characterized by dry conjunctival mucosae, irritable eyes, epiphora (constant tearing), and xerostomia (dryness of the mouth), which increases risk of dental erosion, dental caries, periodontal disease, and oral infections. ALSG has variable expressivity, and affected individuals may have aplasia or hypoplasia of the lacrimal, parotid, submandibular, and sublingual glands and absence of the lacrimal puncta. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15654336}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Lacrimo-auriculo-dento-digital syndrome (LADDS) [MIM:149730]: An autosomal dominant ectodermal dysplasia, a heterogeneous group of disorders due to abnormal development of two or more ectodermal structures. Lacrimo-auriculo-dento-digital syndrome is characterized by aplastic/hypoplastic lacrimal and salivary glands and ducts, cup-shaped ears, hearing loss, hypodontia and enamel hypoplasia, and distal limb segments anomalies. In addition to these cardinal features, facial dysmorphism, malformations of the kidney and respiratory system and abnormal genitalia have been reported. Craniosynostosis and severe syndactyly are not observed. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:16501574, ECO:0000269 PubMed:16630169}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
