Summaries for FGF5 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for FGF5 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 gene was identified as an oncogene, which confers transforming potential when transfected into mammalian cells. Targeted disruption of the homolog of this gene in mouse resulted in the phenotype of abnormally long hair, which suggested a function as an inhibitor of hair elongation. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for FGF5 Gene

FGF5 (Fibroblast Growth Factor 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FGF5 include trichomegaly and trichomegaly, cataract, and hereditary spherocytosis. 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.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FGF5 Gene

  • Plays an important role in the regulation of cell proliferation and cell differentiation. Required for normal regulation of the hair growth cycle. Functions as an inhibitor of hair elongation by promoting progression from anagen, the growth phase of the hair follicle, into catagen the apoptosis-induced regression phase (By similarity).
