Summaries for FGF19 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for FGF19 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 growth factor is a high affinity, heparin dependent ligand for FGFR4. Expression of this gene was detected only in fetal but not adult brain tissue. Synergistic interaction of the chick homolog and Wnt-8c has been shown to be required for initiation of inner ear development. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for FGF19 Gene

FGF19 (Fibroblast Growth Factor 19) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FGF19 include Functional Diarrhea and In Situ Pulmonary Adenocarcinoma. Among its related pathways are RET signaling and Apoptotic Pathways in Synovial Fibroblasts. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include growth factor activity and fibroblast growth factor receptor binding. An important paralog of this gene is FGF21.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FGF19 Gene

  • Involved in the suppression of bile acid biosynthesis through down-regulation of CYP7A1 expression, following positive regulation of the JNK and ERK1/2 cascades. Stimulates glucose uptake in adipocytes. Activity requires the presence of KLB and FGFR4.

    Quaternary structure:
    • Interacts with FGFR1, FGFR2, FGFR3 and FGFR4. Affinity between fibroblast growth factors (FGFs) and their receptors is increased by KL, KLB and heparan sulfate glycosaminoglycans that function as coreceptors. Interacts with KL; this interaction is direct. Interacts with KLB; this interaction is direct. Interacts with FGFR4 in the presence of heparin, KL or KLB. Interacts with MALRD1 (PubMed:23747249).
    • Contrarily to other members of the family that can bind several FGF receptors FGF19 is specific for FGFR4.
