Gene: Fgf8 (fibroblast growth factor 8) Mus musculus
Symbol: Fgf8
Name: fibroblast growth factor 8
Description: Predicted to have signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; embryonic morphogenesis; and positive regulation of protein phosphorylation. Predicted to localize to the external side of plasma membrane and extracellular space. Used to study DiGeorge syndrome and tetralogy of Fallot. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hypogonadotropic hypogonadism 6 with or without anosmia and prostate carcinoma in situ. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; branchial arch; embryo ectoderm; limb; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human FGF8 (fibroblast growth factor 8); PARTICIPATES IN fibroblast growth factor signaling pathway; melanoma pathway; mitogen activated protein kinase signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (S)-amphetamine; 17beta-estradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: Aigf; androgen-induced growth factor; Fgf-8; HBGF-8; heparin-binding growth factor 8; MGC59627
