Gene: GDF5 (growth differentiation factor 5) Homo sapiens
Symbol: GDF5
Name: growth differentiation factor 5
Description: Exhibits BMP binding activity and identical protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including SMAD protein signal transduction; regulation of chondrocyte differentiation; and regulation of transmembrane receptor protein serine/threonine kinase signaling pathway. Predicted to localize to the extracellular space. Implicated in Parkinson's disease; bone disease (multiple); and proximal symphalangism.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
