QuickView for FGF21 (gene)


Gene Symbol:
FGF21 Homo sapiens Homo sapiens
Full name:
fibroblast growth factor 21
Synonyms:
N/A
Genomic Location:
Chr 19: 53951156-53953394
Description:
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family. FGF family members possess broad mitogenic and cell survival activities and are involved in a variety of biological processes including embryonic development, cell growth, morphogenesis, tissue repair, tumor growth and invasion. The function of this growth fa...
