Gene: Fgf18 (fibroblast growth factor 18) Mus musculus
Symbol: Fgf18
Name: fibroblast growth factor 18
Description: Predicted to have type 1 fibroblast growth factor receptor binding activity and type 2 fibroblast growth factor receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of chondrocyte differentiation; positive regulation of signal transduction; and skeletal system development. Predicted to localize to the cytoplasm and nucleolus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; embryo mesenchyme; sensory organ; and skeleton. Orthologous to human FGF18 (fibroblast growth factor 18); PARTICIPATES IN fibroblast growth factor signaling pathway; melanoma pathway; mitogen activated protein kinase signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2-tert-butylhydroquinone; 3,3',5-triiodo-L-thyronine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: D130055P09Rik; FGF-18; zFGF5
