Gene: Fgf9 (fibroblast growth factor 9) Mus musculus
Symbol: Fgf9
Name: fibroblast growth factor 9
Description: Predicted to have fibroblast growth factor receptor binding activity and growth factor activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; positive regulation of cell population proliferation; and regulation of signal transduction. Predicted to localize to basement membrane; cytoplasm; and extracellular space. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; cranium; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Used to study lung cancer; multiple synostoses syndrome; and pleuropulmonary blastoma. 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 1,1-dichloroethene; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 3,3',5-triiodo-L-thyronine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
