Gene: Fgf9 (fibroblast growth factor 9) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Fgf9
Name: fibroblast growth factor 9
Description: Exhibits fibroblast growth factor receptor binding activity and growth factor activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of vascular smooth muscle cell differentiation involved in phenotypic switching; positive regulation of macromolecule metabolic process; and positive regulation of vascular associated smooth muscle cell migration. Localizes to basement membrane and cytoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in multiple synostoses syndrome. Orthologous to human FGF9 (fibroblast growth factor 9); PARTICIPATES IN fibroblast growth factor signaling pathway; melanoma pathway; mitogen activated protein kinase signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2-amino-2-deoxy-D-glucopyranose.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: FGF-9; GAF; glia-activating factor; HBGF-9
