Gene: Fgf8 (fibroblast growth factor 8) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Fgf8
Name: fibroblast growth factor 8
RGD ID: 70891
Description: Enables chemoattractant activity. Involved in several processes, including neuron development; response to oxidative stress; and response to xenobiotic stimulus. Located in external side of plasma membrane. Biomarker of hypospadias. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hypogonadotropic hypogonadism 6 with or without anosmia and prostate carcinoma in situ. 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 bisphenol A; busulfan; dibutyl phthalate.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Previously known as: Fgf6c; fibroblast growth factor 6c; fibroblast growth factor 8 (androgen-induced)
