External Ids 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.
