Gene: FGF6 (fibroblast growth factor 6) Homo sapiens
Symbol: FGF6
Name: fibroblast growth factor 6
Description: Predicted to have growth factor activity. Involved in fibroblast growth factor receptor signaling pathway and positive regulation of cell population proliferation. Predicted to localize to the extracellular region. Biomarker of prostate carcinoma in situ.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: FGF-6; HBGF-6; heparin secretory-transforming protein 2; heparin-binding growth factor 6; HST-2; HST2; HSTF-2
