Gene: Gdf9 (growth differentiation factor 9) Mus musculus
Symbol: Gdf9
Name: growth differentiation factor 9
Description: Predicted to have cytokine activity and transforming growth factor beta receptor binding activity. Involved in negative regulation of cell growth and oocyte growth. Localizes to the cytoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in premature ovarian failure. Is expressed in 2-cell stage embryo; 4-cell stage embryo; embryo; and ovary. Orthologous to human GDF9 (growth differentiation factor 9).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
