Summaries for FGF8 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for FGF8 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 is known to be a factor that supports androgen and anchorage independent growth of mammary tumor cells. Overexpression of this gene has been shown to increase tumor growth and angiogensis. The adult expression of this gene is restricted to testes and ovaries. Temporal and spatial pattern of this gene expression suggests its function as an embryonic epithelial factor. Studies of the mouse and chick homologs revealed roles in midbrain and limb development, organogenesis, embryo gastrulation and left-right axis determination. The alternative splicing of this gene results in four transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for FGF8 Gene

FGF8 (Fibroblast Growth Factor 8 (Androgen-Induced)) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FGF8 include hypogonadotropic hypogonadism 6 with or without anosmia and kallmann syndrome 6. Among its related pathways are PI3K-Akt signaling pathway and PI-3K cascade. GO annotations related to this gene include growth factor activity and type 1 fibroblast growth factor receptor binding. An important paralog of this gene is FGF18.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot

FGF8_HUMAN
  • Hypogonadotropic hypogonadism 6 with or without anosmia (HH6) [MIM:612702]: A disorder characterized by absent or incomplete sexual maturation by the age of 18 years, in conjunction with low levels of circulating gonadotropins and testosterone and no other abnormalities of the hypothalamic-pituitary axis. In some cases, it is associated with non-reproductive phenotypes, such as anosmia, cleft palate, and sensorineural hearing loss. Anosmia or hyposmia is related to the absence or hypoplasia of the olfactory bulbs and tracts. Hypogonadism is due to deficiency in gonadotropin-releasing hormone and probably results from a failure of embryonic migration of gonadotropin-releasing hormone-synthesizing neurons. In the presence of anosmia, idiopathic hypogonadotropic hypogonadism is referred to as Kallmann syndrome, whereas in the presence of a normal sense of smell, it has been termed normosmic idiopathic hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (nIHH). {ECO:0000269 PubMed:18596921, ECO:0000269 PubMed:23643382}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting distinct genetic loci, including the gene represented in this entry. The genetics of hypogonadotropic hypogonadism involves various modes of transmission. Oligogenic inheritance has been reported in some patients carrying mutations in FGF8 as well as in other HH-associated genes including FGFR1 (PubMed:23643382). {ECO:0000269 PubMed:23643382}.
