Gene: Fgf6 (fibroblast growth factor 6) Mus musculus
Symbol: Fgf6
Name: fibroblast growth factor 6
Description: Predicted to have fibroblast growth factor receptor binding activity and growth factor activity. Involved in cartilage condensation and myoblast differentiation. Predicted to localize to the sarcolemma. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; embryo mesenchyme; limb; and musculature. Orthologous to human FGF6 (fibroblast growth factor 6); PARTICIPATES IN fibroblast growth factor signaling pathway; syndecan signaling pathway; melanoma pathway; INTERACTS WITH (S)-amphetamine; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,2',4,4',5,5'-hexachlorobiphenyl.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: Fgf-6; HBGF-6; heparin secretory-transforming protein 2; heparin-binding growth factor 6; HST-2; HSTF-2
