Gene: FGF16 (fibroblast growth factor 16) Homo sapiens
Symbol: FGF16
Name: fibroblast growth factor 16
Description: This gene encodes a member of a family of proteins that are involved in a variety of biological processes, including embryonic development, cell growth, morphogenesis, tissue repair, tumor growth and invasion. This gene is expressed in cardiac cells and is required for proper heart development. Mutation in this gene was also observed in individuals with metacarpal 4-5 fusion. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2014]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: FGF-16; metacarpal 4-5 fusion; MF4
