Gene: GDF3 (growth differentiation factor 3) Homo sapiens
Symbol: GDF3
Name: growth differentiation factor 3
RGD ID: 1345464
Description: Exhibits protein kinase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of BMP signaling pathway; negative regulation of epidermal cell differentiation; and skeletal system development. Localizes to cytoplasm. Implicated in Klippel-Feil syndrome 3 and isolated microphthalmia 7.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: GDF-3; growth/differentiation factor 3; KFS3; MCOP7; MCOPCB6
