Entrez Gene Summary for FGF17 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family. Member of the FGF family 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 expressed during embryogenesis and in the adult cerebellum and cortex and may be essential for vascular growth and normal brain development. Mutations in this gene are the cause of hypogonadotropic hypogonadism 20 with or without anosmia. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2015]

GeneCards Summary for FGF17 Gene

FGF17 (Fibroblast Growth Factor 17) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FGF17 include Hypogonadotropic Hypogonadism 20 With Or Without Anosmia and Normosmic Congenital Hypogonadotropic Hypogonadism. Among its related pathways are FGFR1 mutant receptor activation and RET signaling. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include growth factor activity and type 2 fibroblast growth factor receptor binding. An important paralog of this gene is FGF8.

FGF17_HUMAN
  • Hypogonadotropic hypogonadism 20 with or without anosmia (HH20) [MIM:615270]: 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:23643382}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting distinct genetic loci, including the gene represented in this entry. Some patients carrying mutations in FGF17 also have a mutation in another HH-associated gene including FGFR1, HS6ST1 and FLRT3 (PubMed:23643382). {ECO:0000269 PubMed:23643382}.
