Gene: Fgf5 (fibroblast growth factor 5) Mus musculus
Symbol: Fgf5
Name: fibroblast growth factor 5
Description: This gene encodes a secreted protein that is a member of a family of heparin-binding growth factors. The encoded protein regulates cell proliferation, particularly the growth of hair follicles. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2013]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: angora; Fgf-5; go; HBGF-5; heparin-binding growth factor 5
