Summaries for FGF9 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for FGF9 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 was isolated as a secreted factor that exhibits a growth-stimulating effect on cultured glial cells. In nervous system, this protein is produced mainly by neurons and may be important for glial cell development. Expression of the mouse homolog of this gene was found to be dependent on Sonic hedgehog (Shh) signaling. Mice lacking the homolog gene displayed a male-to-female sex reversal phenotype, which suggested a role in testicular embryogenesis. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for FGF9 Gene

FGF9 (Fibroblast Growth Factor 9) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FGF9 include multiple synostoses syndrome 3 and multiple synostoses syndrome. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Immune System. 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 FGF9 Gene

  • Plays an important role in the regulation of embryonic development, cell proliferation, cell differentiation and cell migration. May have a role in glial cell growth and differentiation during development, gliosis during repair and regeneration of brain tissue after damage, differentiation and survival of neuronal cells, and growth stimulation of glial tumors.

    Protein attributes for FGF9 Gene

    Size:
    208 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    23441 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Monomer. Homodimer. Interacts with FGFR1, FGFR2, FGFR3 and FGFR4. Affinity between fibroblast growth factors (FGFs) and their receptors is increased by heparan sulfate glycosaminoglycans that function as coreceptors.
    Miscellaneous:
    • Biochemical analysis of the Asn-99 mutation reveals a significantly impaired FGF signaling, as evidenced by diminished activity of the MAPK1/MAPK2 pathway and decreases CTNNB1 and MYC expression when compared with wild-type protein. Binding of mutant protein to the receptor FGFR3 is severely impaired, although homodimerization of mutant to itself or wild-type is not detectably affected, providing a basis for the observed defective FGF9 signaling.
