Gene: GDF6 (growth differentiation factor 6) Homo sapiens
Symbol: GDF6
Name: growth differentiation factor 6
Description: Predicted to have cytokine activity and transforming growth factor beta receptor binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of chondrocyte differentiation; positive regulation of macromolecule metabolic process; and transmembrane receptor protein serine/threonine kinase signaling pathway. Predicted to localize to the extracellular space. Implicated in several diseases, including Klippel-Feil syndrome; Leber congenital amaurosis 17; cleft lip; isolated microphthalmia 4; and multiple synostoses syndrome.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
