Summaries for CTGF Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CTGF Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a mitogen that is secreted by vascular endothelial cells. The encoded protein plays a role in chondrocyte proliferation and differentiation, cell adhesion in many cell types, and is related to platelet-derived growth factor. Certain polymorphisms in this gene have been linked with a higher incidence of systemic sclerosis. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2009]

GeneCards Summary for CTGF Gene

CTGF (Connective Tissue Growth Factor) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CTGF include limited scleroderma and urethral stricture. Among its related pathways are Gene Expression and Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include growth factor activity and integrin binding. An important paralog of this gene is NOV.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CTGF Gene

  • Major connective tissue mitoattractant secreted by vascular endothelial cells. Promotes proliferation and differentiation of chondrocytes. Mediates heparin- and divalent cation-dependent cell adhesion in many cell types including fibroblasts, myofibroblasts, endothelial and epithelial cells. Enhances fibroblast growth factor-induced DNA synthesis.
